    I think I recall hearing you can put a plow on an Expidition.
    Anyone know the best type to put on one?
    Maybe a Meyer, Boss?
    Any help?
    Thx

    2003 F350 Meyer II EZ Mount

    If you can I think it would have to be a light duty plow. Depending on your needs it might work. Research the web.

    I have seen a Boss V plow on a suburban and it wasn't a 2500. Brand new 2004 had a boss V. The guy does plowing in my neighborhood.

    You can put most of the poly plows on the Expedition. SnoWay was first to have a subframe, but now there are others. Timbrens will probably be needed since the truck is sprung for comfort.

    Any plow compatible with the F-150 will be fine. A boss 7'6 standard will do the trick.

    A guy around here has 2 suburbans with plows on them. The first time I saw them I wondered how good they would be but he does a pile of residential and they seem to work fine.

    I have know a guy with a western plow on his suburban and he seems to do fine with that. He has issues with his plow but his truck has been great for plowing. I would guess your ford would be the same.

    You shouldn't have any problem with a Snoway that's like 18 or 20" tall.

    Isn't an Expedition a F150 frame? I would go with a full size snoway. 7.5' Light but wide enough and tall enough for the vehicle.

    I have a 98 Ford F150 with a 7.5 snoway. It is a light plow and has the down-pressure system. F150s and Expeditions have the same frame. The OFF-ROAD upgrade is very important as to how well the front end will hold up. I have the 4x4 off-road package and it plows great. I plow a lot of residential accounts. good luck.

  14. do a search, I remember someone posting a pic of an expy with a blizzard (I think) plow. I assume that the truck is a pre 2003 model?
