    Left a deposit Friday on a 2001 f250 5.4 V8 with 126k. It was mainly used by a carpenter since he bought it 4 years ago with 65k. Never had a plow on it. It's going to need a few odd and ends done before winter but nothing major.. I just need to find a decent plow for it. I'm thinking either going with a fisher MM2 or a Boss V-plow. What do you guys think? Also what's the biggest plow blade I could put on? 8' 1/2" or 9' ?

    Nice truck. As far as size,it depends on the rating of the front end. If it has the 4400lb rating then 7.5 is max plow
    If it has the 4800 or 5200 then it could take the 8.5 or 9' check the sticker inside the drivers door.

    Great looking truck. I hope you paid a fair price for it. The truck is just now broke in.

    beefing up your front springs isnt that hard if you need to upgrade nice buy, super d's are the way to go. I'm glad I came back to Ford a few years ago, after a couple years of sabatical.

    No they're just aftermarket lights (you can tell by them being all clear with no amber at all) with a tint of some sort on them.

    I'm that big fan of the Blizzard. I'd like to get a 8'6" boss vxt or Fisher MM2.

    You are correct, they are aftermarket. Not sure where the guy got them from but I like the look. Next summer, I'm going to get the truck repainted and get the head lights cleaned up and get the tail lights tinted.

    Better look at the lights

    I like your truck! The arizona beige paint against the tinted lights looks good. You can run a 9' 2" Boss V if you'd like, just make sure you have the 5200 FAWR.
