    I wondered how you could pick up the front end of the new trucks, they dont have torsion bars anymore do they?

    That truck should be perfect. I will suggest a little ballast.

    Yes its a midweight. Yes the 07 new style is the first year for the coilspring front end. How much ballast should i use??? The front end only drops 3/8 of an inch when i raise the plow.

    I would run anywhere from 300 to 500lbs.
