Western ProPlow on F150?

    Has anyone put a Western Pro Plow on an F150? I'm pretty sure it would be too heavy but I'm just wondering if it's possible. I have the choice of putting the plow on a 2500 Chevy or the F150 but I use the Chevy to pull a skidsteer when it snows. The F150 is an '07 regular cab with 8ft. bed and 4.6 V8.

    Obviously it's not recommended since Western doesn't list the pro-plow as an option in the quickmatch. I'm more interested in if it's possible than if it's a good idea. The truck and plow will probably be in use for 2-3 storms a year. I'm pretty sure I know what everyone is going to say but I figured I'd ask.

    I have a 2000 w/ a 7'6'' wester unimount pro it holds it pretty well (I have timbrens and always run a ballast) I recommend it, its not really as bad a some say. Obviously don't beat the truck to death and be mindful of the weaker front-end.

    Why can't the Chevy do both at the same time? Putting it on the Chevy seems like a no brainer to me....
