    I have a Ford Expedition 4X4 with a 5.4 engine. Anybody know a plow that will fit it?

    I have a Sno-Way 26 series 7 1/2 ft. on my 2000 Expedition. Sno-Way required a Front axle rating of at least 3450#. Mine is 3500#. I believe Ford reduced the 2005 Expedition front axle rating to 3350#, and that is why Sno-Way didn't make them for that year's expedition. I've heard some have put plows on, but had to install themselves since a dealer usually won't install a plow that exceeds the front axle rating.....Not sure if anyone else makes one rated for that year....Hope you find one...my expedition is a great vehicle to plow with!

    I have the same body style Expedition (2003). No one makes a plow with a front mount for us. I agree with JCE that it is due to the lowering of the front axle rating from the Gen 1 body style. When I looked into it, I was told by several plow dealers that an F-150 or 1st Gen Expedition mount MIGHT work. But, it would require modifications to the front fascia (basically cutting big holes in the lower part). I got a rear pull plow for my property and doing some friend's drives. Of course, now I just have to get it working.....But it fits great!:dizzy:

    Ive seen a newer expedition ext driving around my area with a fisher LD plow on it. I dont know if its a custom mount of what, i would think an F150 mount would come pretty close to fitting the bet.
