What to get for my 2000 F-150

    I have a 2000 F-150 XLT 4x4 7700. I want to get a used plow or a residential plow for it. In the past I was told that I can not use a plow because it is a extended cab. The Front Axle is rated for a plow and when I ask they say something like "due to the doors...blah blah"
    So What do I need? I just was to do my driveway, and maybe a neignbors, mine is approx 2500 ft long so the snowblower option is getting old

    Any help appreciated

    just a basic light duty plow... and with a 2500ft drive way i don't know how well a snow bear will hold up...

    i've got a 98 f150 extened cab and it holds a 7.5 just fine..... give the t-bars a few turns and add some ballast...

    A small Disher or a Boss Sport Duty plow would work good JMO.

    This truck is perfect for plowing! My first plow truck was the same truck you have. I had a 7'6" fisher on it and ran it from 2000 until 2006 then I upgraded to a 2006 dodge for plowing and then this year an F-250 to because I do a lot of towing with 2-3tons at a time. Truck ran great every snow and had no problems.

    You can absolutely plow w/ this truck. I have the same truck and I just started plowing w/ it. I put a Fisher 7.5 RD min. mount on it and it handles just fine. I might crank up my torsion bars to give the front end a little compensation for the weight, but you have the 7700 bars so you'll be fine. If you go with fisher the push plate part # is 7150 ('97-2003 F150's). check your want-ads or craigslist, I got mine back in July for $75.
