    Yes...7'6" plows fit nicely onto 1/2 ton trucks like yours.

    Well it is a Ford so you should be OK! It's not a 250 or 350, but a 7'6" plow should be no problem.

    you should not have a problem. I have a 95 F-150, been plowing with it for 2 years. Maybe add some air bags in front springs, maybe even heavy duty springs you will be ok.

    I have that exact truck witha 7'6" snoway and it plows great. other than the truck being rediculously long. I do have airbags in the front which make a big difference. pics in my sig along with this.

    Front end Air bags

    Good scoop guys. I have a 04 F150, how much are the "air bags" for the front end? Did you install them yourself? Thanks! wesport

    mine we on the truck when i bought the truck so i cant help at all. but a quick search of the interweb should find you plenty of results. they go inside the front coil springs so those have to be removed to install them....other than that it is running some air lines. mine are mounted on the front upper radiator suport(I think it is called), one for each side.

    You may find an F150 a little big for driveways. I used one till I got a jeep for a back up used the jeep once ....SOLD the truck. I can do twice the driveways with the jeep.

    plowmeister,


    you ever have any problems getting it to push? ive been thinking of adding a jeep (girlfriend wants one id prefer a volvo or a suv that doesnt have a removable top) but im worried about having to have a truck follow along with it on bigger storms in case it cant move the banks. and if i had one you know id have a plow on it and want it to work.
    i remember once i asked someone with a wrangler to do a drive for me and he said id have to get someone with a bigger truck he couldnt break the bank the town snowplow left to get into the drive. just curious as to if you had a problem with this.

    Everybody has their own opinion's. A snoway would be an excellent choice for that truck.

    My ford had 205 ft/lb of torque the jeep has 195 the truck has more weight but I put 500lb of lead in the back of the jeep and use blizak tires. Will a F150 push a bigger lump of snow ? probably, How big a lump do need to push in driveways? would I use a Jeep to plow a street no, or a large parking lot no, why would a truck sutable for that use be good for driveways. I plow 75 driveways/storm with a jeep.
