    I'd throw a 9'2'' xt vee on the front and then a buyers stainless v box in the back!

    That will be great if they don't fix it before they throw a load in there and take off down the road just my .02

    If that truck is going to be used around here the Meyers will be fine. The average snow fall down here is 10 to 12 inches of a year . In the past three years we have not had any plowable snow. There are a lot of salt only events down here. I am going to guess that 80 to 90% of all plows down here are Meyers straight blades. On single wheel trucks all you see is a 7 1/2 foot plow and on a dual wheel truck you will find a 8 foot plow.

    do you find that its difficult to steer with the single and dual wheeled trucks. I have heard they are great on gas, up here in the midwest we run 4 and 6 wheeled ones. Works great:bday:

    Gas truck. Diesel would be $$$. I don't like the new Ford front ends (used to have all Fords before I bought my GMC) but I actually like this truck.

    Looks like a diesel to me. Look at the vents below the "F-450", if they have a red tint its a diesel.

    That truck was down at the EXPO this year at the Ford booth. Not a bad looking truck!

    $42,000 must not include the plow or salter. I just bought a 2008 F 450 extra cab gas/auto and it was $33,000 with no bed. After 9ft dump and Blizzard 8611 l have about $46,000 in it.

    The sticker on the window had a base price around 30K and with all the options it was 42K.
    The truck has a diesel engine.
