    I just bought a bone stock F350 (6.4l 4x4 SRW with 20k miles). I would like some guidance on how big I can go with a plow and what changes suspension-wise you guys recommend. Thanks!

    I run a Western ProPlus 8'6". The truck handles it well, although Im still thinking about upgrading to the 7k lbs. springs.

    I swapped my front spirngs to i believe 6600 lbers in my 05 350. Boss VXT didnt even move the truck, felt solid as a freight train stacking, HOWEVER the ride suffers incredibly when running rough roads empty. If those roads happen to curve and bump and jump and hump all at the same time,,,,hang on.

    Leveled the truck right out tho. And hey its all about lookin cool right? haha
