    ok im not trying to start a brand war here. im looking to get a plow for my new truck and am not sure what to get i think it is between a boss or a western. i am also thinking of outting another meyers on it because there are so many dealers around here.

    What kind of set up do you have NOW on your F250. I have seen just shocks, shocks with a spring. Those were factory too.

    Is there any doubt? Western!!!

    Honestly, just go with the one that offers the best LOCAL support. From what I hear the Boss plows are nice too. If you are doing a lot of commercial, get the pro-wings. They're awesome.

    I'd have to say from all the feed back I've seen on this and other boards, Western or Boss.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. You should definitely use Timbrens. I have a 1-ton dually with a Cummins, and the Timbrens still help tremendously.
    I very much enjoy my Boss. I cannot speak for the other name brands, but my Boss is very efficient. I am also considering a rear mounted plow to increase my efficiency.
    Hope this helps.
