    You will not be able to cover the width of the truck with that plow, especially when you angle it or plow around corners. Your rear wheels will be in the windrow and will be pushing the snow everywhere. I have an 02 F350 Dually and I used an 8' for one storm and went up to a 9' to get better coverage.

    You need at least a 9 ft plow to cover your truck width. I have an 8ft on my excursion and wish it was 8.5 at least.

    8'6" in minimun 9 foot is better if you don't travel the roads and work in one lot 10 foot is even better.

    Big difference between a plow blade and a set of pro wings. they don't scrape like a steel steel wear edge and they don't hold up against heavy snow pack

    If you go with an extendable plow like an XLS, WideOut or Power Plow, you can get an 8 Foot plow, a 10 foot plow, and a 9 foot plow all in one.

    I have an 8' but I could easily run a 8.5 or 9 on my 350.

    a buddy of mine runs a 8ft on his 04 f350 dually and it covers his wheel base fine.. although with a truck of that caliber you SHOULD use 9ft to cover the corners and such. Goodluck

    A 8' Western straight blade only covers 83" wide at full angle. I don't think your buddy is covering his wheelbase. I know a cab and chassis GM is narrower then the dually pickup but not sure even that would cover.

    I know an older thread but figured would bump it up to the top.

    Picked up an 03 f350, single rear wheel, with the 5.4 for a steal. Wondering if my truck could handle my 9' pro plus plowing in heavier wet snow?

    Not worried of truck capability, worried about size of my current plow being 9ft steel both weight which shouldn't be bad but mostly about if truck could move decent amount of wet snow with that big of a plow.
