    We've installed a few on these trucks. Timbrens will help keeping it off the ground. There are strut spacers out there too, many options really depending on how much money he wants to spend on upgrades. Timbrens are by far the least expensive.

    What year is the Tundra, also if he has any pictures of how it's mounted would help with some ideas.

    Yep, thats the one. Your buddy will need about 1000 lbs of ballast in the back. They can be nice plow trucks due to their size.

    That's weird because the MD75 is one of the lightest steel plows out there. I have one on my 1999 F150 and it hardly makes the front drop at all without any modifications. I didn't even raise the torsion bars.

    There is a big difference of weight capacities between a F150 and a Tundra, go to SnowDogg and just go through the plow selector, look at the ballast recommended.

    Your F150 has torsion bar suspension, the Tundra has strut suspensions, different weight capacities.
