    Company just bought a 2010 Ford F-250 crew cab with a gas engine. Do you think it could handle a 8' straight poly plow? We did install Air-Lift airbags on the front and rear. Also what are the differences in sport duty, standard duty, and super duty...Thank you
     
  2. I have a 98 Dodge 3/4 ton. I put 1,860 lbs. of gravel in it today and it barely, just barely mind you, squatted a tiny bit. I am told an 8' blade goes on 3/4 ton (2500) trucks. 7.6" for 1/2 tons, as a gen. rule.

    I have a 2007 2500 with a 8'2" poly vxt and it is fine I am sure you will be fine with a straight blade look on the boss web site and it will tell you what will work hope that helps

    You can run up to a 9' 2" VX-T. As long as you have the snow plow prep springs, you will have no trouble at all and the suspension will sink from an inch or less.

    i think ford has a higher gavw(something like that) then the dodges and with a gas engine you can have a heavier plow then if you had a diesel. if you look up plows for dodges @ bossplows.com they dont recomend a qc diesel long bed to have a plow. i am one of those not listening to that and just bought a new 8'2" steel power v xt and cant wait for the snow
