    After using Western straight blades on my last two trucks I decided to try out the Boss plows this time around. Went with the 9'2" Power-V XT on my 07 F-350.

    I've since swapped out the 6000lb coils springs on the truck for 7000lb springs, went with Bilstein 5100 series shocks and Icon Vehicle Dynamics Caster Cams and Adjustable trac bar. Earlier in the year I had tossed the stock steering stabilizer in the trash in favor of the Icon Vehicle Dynamics dual stabilizer.


    Still need to add some Autometer gauges and some strobes or LEDs.


    I put some PIAA 1500 Back Up Lamps in the rear bumper last year when I got the truck and had it painted. They are wired to come on when the truck goes into reverse and also hooked up to one of the upfitter switches in the truck:

    I'm on the fence about it. I can't decide if it looks awesome or a bit to light of blue for my liking. A tad bit darker and I'd be all over it.

    Those rims/tires just set it off. Congrats on having a beautiful truck!

    I agree, always photographs really light. In the sun it pops pretty good.
    Actually a GM color.



    Thanks. Got them for a pretty good deal on ebay (Weld Renegades), had my buddy paint them charcoal.

    Nice truck. Do you have any daytime pics of the lights in the rear bumper?

    That's a beautiful truck, even for a ford. I'd hate to get it salty.

    where did u get the 7K springs from? going to pick up an 09 350 and considering putting in timbrens to keep the springs from wearing too fast. but i might consider going with a spring swap.

    09 350 long bed crew cab diesel.

    My buddy who painted the truck, wouldn't let me make the mounts as tight as I did on my other truck. Didn't want me to chip the paint or have salt and crap collect in there.

    My other truck:

    None other than a cat-back exhaust. I worry about head gaskets and since I drive a lot I can't afford for it to be broke down. 36,600 miles on it right now. Tow 9000-12,500lbs often.

    I windowed the block on my 01 once....that wasn't any fun :D


    I know. Pretty much avoided driving it all last winter. Only covered in salt once.
    Have some fender flares to get painted and install on it to cover up the 325mm wide tires I currently run. Most likely step down to a 305mm width next time.


    Yep, that's what I'm hoping too.
    Thanks.


    Thanks.

    Bought the 7000lb coils at the dealer. I think I paid $54 each.
    Part number: 5C3Z-5310-AA

    If I need more than that, I'm going to do the load assist bags inside the coils.


    LOL, thanks.

    looks great just make sure the pin going thrugh the A-frame horizontally has the nut tack welded on, they have a bad habit of backing off and causeing a lot of damage to the plow and its expencive to fix! my brother works and installs boss plows and has seen this a ton of time and every plow hes put together he tacks the nut on other than that good luck with it!!!
