    I would go with an 8' for sure......your truck can handle it. I have never used a western...so I have no opinion.....I have used a Boss and thought it was a good plow set up.

    I would go with a 8 footer. That truck will handle anything from a 7' 6" to a Wideout ( 10' )
    If i had a truck like that, i would get a V. Who knows you might do bigger commercial. The V works great. I see a guy that does drives on my block and he has a V. He back drags it out and then piles it in the Scoop position. Ohh ya by the way go with Western. Good luck

    Some good reasons...

    To consider a Snoway...I have an F250 and liked the fact that the Snoway has the DOWN PRESSURE for back dragging those driveways...also they have a lighter weight for less WEAR AND TEAR on those "fragile":rolleyes: f250 ball joints and front ends...no chain slap or bounce...and wireless controller to boot! The moldboard can be easily exchanged for stainless or poly as well a steel one...very versatile!
    I went with a 29 model which is good for anything you can throw at it, commercial included.
    Seemed to me to be the best of all worlds in a plow for my purposes, which are about the same as yours...driveways and light commercial accounts. I have no connection to Snoways except that I thought they were a great product and I hear nothing bad about them.
