Ive been updating our little fleet and just bought (a couple months ago) a 2019 F350 CC short bed with the 6.7L and wasn't even thinking about plow set up's and come to find out a new XLS isn't an option. My local dealer said its too heavy but you "can" put it on but doesn't advise it. Anyone running a newer Super Duty diesel and a new style XLS?

What springs do you have?

Might have to add air bags to help out a tad

Just plugged some numbers in the ematch, the 810 is a option in mild steel and ss.

I'm running an 8611 LoPro on a 2500 CC Cummings. Have been since new.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Doing what you do you really should pay more attention to truck models and options.
Well if we could only be half as good as you I guess.

Ive done that twice just to double check and my match didn't have it as an option.

The point being (guess I should have typed slower) just because they don't recommend it, doesn't mean it won't work. I am running just as heavy a plow on a truck with a lower GVWR and FAWR and have been. Fully aware that they are different trucks, but they are both diesels and I believe I'm only allowed a 7'6" straight blade or something on my truck.

On a serious note, did you do anything to the front end or is it all stock? How much does it squat?

I believe it squatted about 1 1/2" initially. It was bad entering and exiting drives so I added airbags. I think they're usually set at 40# when the plow is on and it might drop 1/2".

Unless I entered something wrong, it listed the xls

He has the 5990, and I'm assuming it's the 10k gvwr.....as mine is a 250 and its 10k.

I just ran it again. For a 2019 F350, CC, diesel, SB, 5990 front axle, there is no XLS recommended for any option on the rear axle or the GVW.

That said, the weight difference between the 810 XLS and the 9.5 XV2 is only 63 lbs. So, functionally, I can't see there being any issue, as Mark said. But it still doesn't change the "recommended" issue on the brand new vehicle.

So did i....
So the first time I ran it, I must have accidentally cked 250 cause it worked.
Now....I tried 350 and it didnt, I tried 250 and it did.....makes NO sense

Especially with airbags and ballast, I wouldn't worry about it.

Only thing I'd worry about is I'd make sure the truck has the factory "plow prep package" otherwise if something goes ( like the $15k diesel ) it's not going to void your warranty.
