    Your truck would definately be fine with no upgrades, my 150 carries the plow fine without timbrens, not much drop at all. I now have timbrens only because i had alredy bought them thinking they would be necessary but once the plow was installed the front did not drop as much as i expected. Now it soes not drop at all.
