Boss 8' Straight Super Duty??

Discussion in 'Boss Plows Discussion' started by mortician79, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. Will it fit alright on my new 08 Dodge Quad Cab Hemi?, or is it too much plow?

    I am not doing commercial plowing, just my own business parking lot and driveway.

    Thanks in advance!

    1/2 ton no, 3/4 ton or more, yes.

    8 footers only come in super duties. The 7 foot 6 inchers are the ones that can be super or standard.
  6. My truck is a 1500.

    I have found a dealer who has demos for sale and this is one of them, so I was wondering if it was too much for my truck.
  7. What would you recommend for my truck, based on all your experiences?

    He also has some Boss V's there too, but I guess that is too much for my truck.

    Can't run anything but a 7' or 7.5' SPORT DUTY on that truck legally. Anything else and it will be overweight on the front axle rating.

    I suppose you are aware that Dodge doesn't recommend ANY snow plows at all on their 1/2 ton trucks now? Can make warranty issues with the truck dealer a choir..to say the least. ;)
  9. Thanks for the advice on the plows.

    Thankfully my dealer will sell a plow with the truck, if you so choose, there for it is easier for warranty issues.
