    I just purchased a new 06 350 6.0 lariat nice truck i will post pics next month when i put new plow mounts on.Any way this truck is a 11,200 gvw snow plow prep package and has a 6000 lb. font end gvw. I was impressed my last 2 trucks 03 350 and 00 250 with plow prep had only 5200 lb font end. This truck also has coil springs that does in fact give shorter turning. I think my boss v plow probably will not shake this front end. Has any one else have a front like this?

    We have an 06 F-350 reg cab and it sags about one inch with our Blizzard 810. You hardly notice the weight with this truck.

    I am running a 05, 06, and 07 F-350 with the coil springs PSD. and Plow Prep, and Blizzard 810's. I will say a set of Timbrens will work wonders for you if you are stacking lots of snow and getting over curbs. The turning radius is great.
