    Ohhh it is! Had the Ford stuck and the GMC couldn't pull it out because of ice, and I had to drive a mile in the snow storm with 20+ MPH winds to get to the site to pull the truck back onto the driveway. Oh well.. stuff happens. Then there was a coffee break after wards to get thawed out :)

    hows the f150 plow?

    I have a f150 supercrew myself, and was thinking about putting a plow on it. Does the front end squat alot with the meyers on it?? How does it plow??

    Thanks guys for the comments! Of course this was after I sprayed everything down to reduce the salt/brine on everything to rot the steel.

    The super-crew plows fine with regular amounts of snow. It was pushed surely when we were plowing 18 or so inches of snow. So we ended up busting out the snow with the inverted V and do 2-3 passes on the drive, then the Ford would come in and clean up and the shoveler would clean the garage doors while I'm on number two or three driveway.

    The Ford does sit down a bit in the front (as does every truck). Just throw some weight in the bed and you'll be fine. If you take care of the truck when plowing, minimal wear and tear will be common. I haven't needed to replace anything on the trucks yet to date and after 3 years of plowing with the Ford that's GREAT!
