Wide-out on a 2011 F350 SRW - Good Match?

    A Dealer close to me has a truck set up with a wide out. I am reasonably confident that the truck will handle the weight of this big plow, but is there an increased likelyhood of front end/alignment issues with this combo verses a straight blade?

    Btw, this is a gas motor, automatic w/manual front hubs and electronic locker for the back.

    He also has a few Boss 8 foot straight blades on the same truck. Better choice?

    Thanks!

    I have a Fisher XLS on my 04 chevy 2500HD and my truck handles the plow fine, It weighs more then the wideout. That truck will handle that plow no problem. Your front end is rated about 1200lbs more then my Chevy.Plus the wideout is the most efficient plow you can buy besides a blizzard 8611. I love my XLS as it shaves 30 to 40% off my plowing time on all my lots.
