    Forum: Another question from the new guy. I have an F350 dually - power stroke - 4 door - If you guys were gonna throw a plow on this - what kind would you recommend? Any other guys on the forum use a dually like mine for plowing? If so - I'd be interested to hear your opinions on the benefits as well as negatives.... Thanks, Dave:drinkup:

    The challenge is not the plow but the truck. That thing is like driving a locomotive on the road. If you are going to plow long stretches of road with it, then one of the high-eng premium plows like the Blizzard or Boss V plow would be best. if you are thinking of driveways or small commercial, then skip the plow and buy another whole plow truck. cost should be about the same ($4000 or so)

    I would recommend a 9' Fisher MM2... Nice setup and heavy duty plow for roads and lots

    without a doubt a 9'. snoway, western, boss, curtis.
    the biggest thing is to buy a plow that has a great dealer in your neighborhood.

    If the truck is still under waranty, BEWARE!!! A crew cab with a Powerstroke puts one heckofalot of weight on your front axel. Adding a snow plow often exceeds the front axel weight limit. I'm not the overweight police (your concern, not mine), but it is definately not worth voiding your waranty. I heard somewhere that it is only illegal with the 8 foot bed? I dunno.
    Something to look in to.

    Having a 4 door means no plow prep package which means ford can void warranty work. I have seen alot of these trucks with plows on them and I haven't heard of anybody damaging their trucks but I would make sure that if it is under warranty the dealer doesn't have a problem with you putting a plow on your truck.
