Pipe76 I'm still trying to figure out how add pictures from my phone up here lol.... As far.as the swiveling goes I'm already starting to see uneven wear of my cutting edge so there's just one more reason why I wish I would've went with the midweight, I also split 55 contracts with one other guy kind of alot for a half ton with an hts but I lease it so oh well lol
Mikey4v, I have an '18 double cab and need to pull the trigger soon. I'm leaning towards the mid weight, any reason why I shouldn't go that route? I posted a thread a few days ago looking for input from site members but have had no responses.

I stopped in at the local Western/Fisher dealer last weekend to look into the HTS. A couple of the guys who work there said they thought the midweight was a much better setup and quoted me on the Western midweight plows, which weigh 540lbs (steel) and 532 lbs (poly). They said that, technically, the steel unit's additional eight pounds puts me over the FAWR, but the poly doesn't. The steel Western midweight is only $200 more than the HTS. The dealer said they'd put it on my truck but I'd have to sign a release because it's over the FAWR. I want to go with the midweight but want to make sure the front end can handle it...that's my concern.

I already purchased a motofab leveling kit, which I will install before I purchase the plow. That's going to lift my front end by 2", not beef up the suspension. Are you suggesting that I install heavier springs too?
