    go with a boss 9'2V. youll need the width while angled to clear the back tires. That truck will move snow. hope your not doing driveways lol

    :nod: i would also look at the fisher xls and the western wide out.

    More importantly find a good dealer and buy what they sell you. a bad plow with a great dealer is better than a great plow with a bad dealer....

    get a big minute mount. you can get them fairly cheap used and they're good plows.

    You will want something that is 9.5 to 10 ft to cover your tracks. I plow with a 04' f-350 crew cab dually. It makes a great plow truck but you want big open spaces. They suck to turn, but can push a lot of snow. I have a 8' blade with custom full height wings that I made that makes it a 10' plow, looks like a blizzard in scoop mode but 10' wide.

    Oh Wait I ment- Toga ! Toga ! Toga ! :drinkup:

    Ha ha , kiding aside 9' min. for that big girl.
    A Blizzard 8611 LoPro would be a nice plow for clearing parking lots quick. If you get big snow or nasty drifts alot a 9' v with wings for busting threw might suit ya better.
    If your budgets tight, a 9' straight with wings moves snow as well, a lil more cumbersome though.

    The Snoway Revolution would be a nice fit:nod:

    I agree with the xls. besides, plows with yellow paint wont rust as fast as ones with red paint! :D lol

    Well if your going use, just make sure that plow is 9ft long! You need that width so that your rear wheels dont run over your windrow!:waving:
