    The lift with the tires, and If you never take the plow off, that's adding to the issues as well

    Was gonna say the same thing - then I scrolled down and it was said...

    - also add that you have a V on a half-ton, which on adds extra/more weight than a straight blade. The 8.2 V is near 800lbs, which is a lot of pounds for that size truck!

    I would ditch the lift and the huge tires. If its a plow truck then plow with it, if its for looking cool with the lift and tires then buy yourself a used 3/4 ton with a plow for plowing.

    I agree.
    And your steering problems will go away.
