    I'm currently in the process of buying a 2004 f350 dually mason dump, 4x4, 5.4 liter, automatic and plan on setting it up for the 2015-16 and beyond snow season. So my question to everyone is, what plow ( straight, expandable, v-plow ) what brand ( I have snow dogg, western, boss, Meyers dealers in my area ) and your pros and cons. also I want to set it up for bulk salt so what salter ( v-box, replacement tailgate, under tailgate) what brand. I have no central hydraulics so I would all have to be electrical. I have some residential driveways, and the majority of the rest are small to medium commercial lots. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

    Boss no question, and your going to want a V for sure. And second the Boss Box But be careful of size, those 5.4's are gutless when it comes to torque.
