    I have a 2006 Ford F250 FX4 Super Duty and it has the snow plow/camper package (TTCC). I need to know do i need to upgrade my alternator from 115 amps to 140. 140 amp alternator is used on the 6.0 diesel so with is marry up?

    Also, what about the fan clutch?
    The springs are 5200 lb, do i need to upgrade to 6000 lb?
    Do i need one or two batteries?

    I and interested in Western Pro Plus, would a 7.5 be enough or is a 8' that beneficial. Its only 100.00 more.

    Experts.....I need help.

    For any 3/4 ton or bigger you need at least an 8ft just to cover the wheelbase width when angled. I can't help you with alternator and stuff although i would use two batteries, I didn't change anything on my 7.3 when i installed mine.
