    Won't need much in preparation for the 8' super as they're not terribly heavy (for your truck). A little ballast in the bed and you'll be good to go.

    Thanks for the info, used the plow the first yime tonight, plow works great but the lights aren't working had alot of corroded connections so i'm hoping it's something small. I'll have to buy a new set of tires as the bologna skins aren't working for the snow.Any suggestions what type I carry a pretty good load in the box at all times.
