    I have a 2001 Ford 150 4X4 Supercab with 5.4L V8, Auto, 3.55 rear, 6500# GVWR, 3600# Front GAWR and a 3550# Rear GAWR. I just started a lawncare operation this past year and some home owners are wanting me to maintain their driveways. I'm from upstate NY area so we do get our share of the lake effect snows. Can this truck handle a plow and if so what do you guys recommend? Any suggestions?

    I like the meyers 7.5 fits well with the ford or a western ultra mount plow :redbounce

    the truck can handle a lighter plow . 7.5ft is the best size plow on a ford 150. meyer, sno-way, western uni mount and ultra mount, and the fisher 7.6 plows would all work very good on your truck. :)

    It's a Ford it can handle anything! I have a 7.6 Fisher on my 02 150 extend cab and the truck handles it great. May want to trow some ballast in the bed, gets a little light in the rear with the blade up.

    Harley Hauler,

    Any picks of your rig. Is it the standard F150 i.e. not 7700lbs package.

    I don't have good pics right now, I'll take some and post them for ya. Its the standard 150 which comes stock w/the rancho 5000 in the corners I swaped those out for adjustable 9000, has the off road pac, but like I said before this truck handles the 7.5 fisher rd great It handles it better than my 98 gmc 1500 Z71 did!!
