    Just picked up a 2006 Ford F-250 5.4L, Regular Cab, 8 ft box...I was wondering what's a good plow for this size truck?

    I'm looking to plow residential places, and possibly a few commercial lots...

    8 footer is good. Look at the signatures of the thousands of members here and look at what their running. There should be a common thread for each truck.

    For a resi/commercial mix, an 8' straight blade with wings is ok, or if your willing to spend the extra cash, an 8.5 foot V plow with or without wings.

    depends on the area you live in and the most common types of driveways. around me we have large long driveways so i run a 9.5 v plow, i also mix in a few commercial lots and an hoa.

    i found for driveways the v plow is awesome, i never want to go back to a straight blade.

    as far as size, you can get what you want but with all the winding long driveways i hated my 8.5 v plow, it just wasnt wide enough for my f350 extended cab long bed, it was very annoying, i love my 9.5. it is more efficient than just the extra foot because the tires dont run into the windrow and pack it down and bring it all back into where you already plowed

    Everyone has their the brand they love best.

    The most important thing is who has a dealership near you.

    Is it open during storms in case you need emergency service?
    Even brand new plows things can go wrong, catch a line and break it, etc...

    Make sure you look at the weight of the plow your going to use and your truck will handle it, too heavy and your looking at front end work quite quickly.

    I use the western pro plus with my ford 350 and never had any serious problems with it, maintence every year before the season.

    Had one of my lines go first year I bought it, think I caught a sharp rock flying up and got it. That's about it.
