    I own the f150.
    The truck handles the plow well, I get 1 inch of drop, measured from ther center of the front wheel well, with the plow up, with 300lbs of balIest behind the rear wheels ( not including nearly 250lbs of tools in the box). I added a 2 inch leveling kit to the front end last weekend, but havent used the plow since then.

    I added the leveling kit more to give me the look i wanted, rather than to adjust for the plow.

    sick trucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....why did you get diffrent plows though??.....and not to bash you, just trying to help ,but any weight infront of the rear axle just contributes to the weight on the front axle, makeing it sag more...

    Nice looking trucks. How hard was it to install the leveling kit?

    I think you lucked out better than your brother: Ford rather than GM, Blizzard rather than Boss, Lightbar rather than none, toolbox rather than no toolbox, ect...

    The level kit went on pretty easy. Good instuctions and the right tools help alot.( impact wrench)
    The first one took over an hour, but the second one went on in 30 mins since I knew what to expect.

    The Blizzard has a tighter curl than the Boss, I noticed. Nice looking trucks.

    Here's a recent shot.

    I disagree fordistough.

    Boss plow still looks new. The blizzard is rusting. Plus the red matches my truck :)
    I prefer corner strobes to lightbars.
    I'll keep my dimondplate toneau-cover over a small toolbox. Pain to load tools into.

    I looked at the F250 before I got the GMC, but the Ford dealer couldnt even come close to the pricing of the GMC at similar option levels. (SLT vs XLT) Plus the 5.4 was just tool little for that size of a truck.
