    I have a 2001 F250 Superduty V10-
    I'd like to plow but just mainly neighbors with long driveways and some other small-time gigs.
    1. Will it do any damage to truck? Truck is heavy-duty and crew cab (HEAVY)
    2. I do not want to spend a lot of $$$,,, Thinking of going used.
    3. How hard are they to install, and what does the truck already need on it??

    1. Yes, to some extent. Take into consideration your Front Axle weight limit, current weight and intended weight of the plow.

    2. That's your decision.

    3. If you have never done an install, best to have someone experienced do it (unless it's something like a Snowbear).
