    all the big plow manufacturers have websites that match the proper plow with your truck.

    If you're going to have the plow installed by a dealer, you'll have to go with the manufacturers recomendation. If you install it yourself, you can put what ever you want on.

    What are you planning on plowing? I would stick to a few drives at the most with a 1/2 ton. If you drive it right it will take care of you for years. I would suggest a Fisher LD 7'6" I had one on a Chevy 1500 and loved it.

    No problem. If you want to compare the other big name manufacturers are:
    Curtis
    SnoWay
    Western
    Meyer
    Blizzard
    Boss

    I am sure that I am missing some, but these are the ones that would have plows that would work on your truck.

    id stick with the lighest setup you can yet still be in your budget, 7.5' tube mount meyers is a good easy to understand plow but i think they plan on making it "obsolete" figures they need to make more money instead of sticking with something tried and true but thats everything i guess.....
    i guess any 7.5' would be decent... i think westen is cheap, you can get them new for 3200 installed around here....the meyer has that new goofy electronic contolled system that costs wayyy too much (one price i got was 5600!!!), maybe go with a poly moldboard instead of steel if you can afford the extra dough, your ball joints will thank you......figure they woulda found a way to make them greasable like the super duties by now...

    Well blizzard really pulled all the stops out of thier plows when they desgined their light duty plows. Very well thought out mounts and light weight design, yet great scraping ablity.

    Now the last thing I would put on that truck is a meyer. Which is the worst snow plow you can buy. But people keep buying them because they are cheap. :realmad:

    im a western guy always, stacks better, more reliable more lift capacity....you can actually use the plow to unstick yourself....etc i should make a list one day

    but yeah exactly, meyers are cheapest which, if youre trying to get the job done, why not, theres tons of dealers around and parts are...a few dimes a dozen instead of millions of dimes a dozen.

    and heck, i could put you together a used setup for 900, buying the 04 undermount for the truck new...and any paper or sell-it has someone with a used plow for 200-500 bucks

    dunno, never was big on buying this stuff new.....

    1/2 ton.I plow with a half ton great truck I have a Sno way they make great plows.I would recommend the sno way with down pressure makes up for the truck only being a half ton.

    I have a 2006 F 150 crew cab with a 7' 6" Minute Mount RD on it. I put a 2" leveling kit in the front and about 400 lbs of ballast at the very rear. The truck rides and handles well with this setup - but as far as plowing, i'll let you know as soon as it snows:salute:
