    Yes, a 1 ton truck will handle a v blade.

    Yes you should be good with what ever blade your chose with that truck, just call one of the distributors and they tell you what you can do. Jusik, Monroe, both in flint or call NBC on the eastside I think its Roseville.

    Lawnman883,

    Stick with your research!! Western recommends only a 7'6" pro for your truck with the following specs:

    2004, ford f350,crew cab,single rear tire (not duellie),6.0 diesel,5200 lb FGAWR,6830 lb MIN RGAWR, 9900 lb GVWR.

    7'6' PRO PLOW AND 8' PRO PLOW ok if your min GVWR is 9700 lb

    NO V-PLOW ETC. to much weight on your front axle per your specs.
    Goodluck,Plowtech.wesport
