    I'm new to the site and have a 2006 f150 ext cab and would like advice on which boss blade (ploy or steel) would be best. I am only doing personal plowing (shop/parents/own
    driveways). Any feedback/personal experience would be great! I also have a friend that has an 05 f150 with a curtis and he had to put front spring spacers to keep the front end up (is this needed?). FYI I will be upgrading the front springs to raise the front GVW w/springs from a f150 that has the factory snow prep package. My area gets a lot of wet/heavy snow and want a blade on the heavier side (I know this will void warranty).

    Just go with the 7'6" standard duty steel. Truck will handle it fine and if you tighten up the springs for the heavy snow you shouldnt have problems of it tripping alot. Also that plow is definitley on the lighter side and wont kill the truck

    I have had the 7 6 standard for a year. I put the 2.5 lift plates in the front. I liked the plow but going from my 1 ton wit ha 9 ft x blade it feels small.

    I am selling the blade but keeping the mount and wiring and gonna put a 8 2 vee on it.
    Let me know if you want the blade.

    you're putting a 8'2" V on a new f150!? That plow weighs over 200lbs more than the standard duty plow. I'd be a little leery of that. I'm interested to see how it makes the season.

    We have 2 1999 Dodge 1500 4x4 with poly V-blades on them...works just fine..Oh ya, add the goodyear airbags to the front coils...makes a BIG difference.
