    There are a few Tundras in my area that have 7.5' Boss Vs mounted on them. They look like they handle the V plows very well.

    Looks like you'd only gain 15lbs ish. Blade for blade it's only 15lbs the mount weight probably isn't much different

    would love to see a pic of the snowdogg v as I am very interested in one, also did you have to level your truck to take that weight of the v plow

    Hey trites Any chance you could show some pictures of the plow and the mount on your truck. Also did you have to put a leveling kit in it

    there was a leveling kit on it when i got the truck 3 years ago. last time i had it on i forgot to take pics since ive been really busy with work and that but i when the plow is up it only drops the front about 2 inches. I was reading on this site that you can get bigger coils from toyotech.com i think that will hold an extra 200 pounds on the front end of the truck. not sure how much they are but it said it was the cheapest way to beef up the front of the truck. i like the plow so far except i would of liked a bigger one. i may put wings on it next year since the truck doesnt have a problem pushing snow and has lots of power. my only concern is the front end parts like wheel bearings ball joints and that stuff but i take my plow off every time im done with it. i will try to get pics next storm. hope this helps ya

    We did a Boss 8'2 VXT on a 2010 Tundra. He already had a 6" lift kit and upgraded suspension. With his upgrades, the truck doesn't sag at all. I'm not so sure it would be the same case without the upgrades.

    Not a Vee but equivalent. We've done a couple of these, the Tundra handles it very well.

    Nice looking Tundra and plow. I would love to have a set up like that. I don't think I would have a 6" lift though, just a 3" and 1" leveling kit and Timbrens.

    That looks great! also looks like a lot of weight out front.

    I have a '13 Tundra rcsb and just installed OME 3" springs and shocks on the front.

    Looking to get a Boss plow this year, and everyone says get a V if you can.

    I looked at the Boss 7.5 plows, and the V is about 200lbs more.

    Looking for more info on this , thanks guys.

    I think your Tundra will handle a 7.5' Boss V.

    Dont forget to add counterwieght to your tundra , they like 3 or 4 bags of groceries placed behind the rear wheeles. Dont forget to take out all the soccer stuff your wife left.
