    F-450, F-550 or F-650

    Is the dealer going to tell me it has to be gas because of the weight of the diesel engine??

    U can run a 9.2 dxt with wings it would be 11' u could use a f350, but if u r talking about a 10' dxt they don't make a 11' u need a f450 or larger

    In this day in age, every dealer will tell you that you cant plow with a diesel because of the weight of the engine. The fact of the matter is that if you want the 10' DXT (the largest they make) you will need ATLEAST a F450 or equivalent. As snow sniper said though, you can use a 350 with a 9.2 dxt with wings and be 11' but personally I would rather have the 450
