    I was curious if a 1991 F150 would handle a 8'2 poly v blade or would it be too much. My mechanic thaught w bigger tranny cooler it would be alright. everybodys thaughts greatly appreciated thanks

    i have an 8'2" v-xt on a 1 ton and they have a plow selector on the boss site i.m.o. i wouldnt put 700+ pounds hanging off the front of a half ton truck unless your suspension is beefed up

    and here in my parts there are half ton fords that are bottomed with 7'6" meyer plows

    Sounds like he's looking to generate some future income from you.

    Not a good idea.
