    not to burst your bubble but other will agree with me that a 7'6 is to small unless you plan on getting wings for it. 8footer at the bare minimum for a super duty truck. also when i was looking at new westerns for my truck there are about 5 grand new depending were you live, how you pay, if they like you or not, you get the idea!

    I may go ahead and get the wings Ive been going back and forth on plows for the last week. I can't pass up this deal. so i may regret it this winter but for this year im going to try the 7'6.

    yea i have a 7'6 on my 1500 and it barely clears the wheels at full angle i now wish i got the 8er but oh well still pushes snow and gets the job done! im just trying to save you from buying to small of a plow and slitting your own throat in the end!

    That is too small of a plow. Got with 8 or 8 1/2 at least.

    If you cant find a bigger plow at least put wings on the 7'6" one.
    7'6" is too small for that truck

    Really don't do 7' 6"! Trust me, I just came from a Western Uni version. Plow worked great, except that it was too damn small. Get an 8' 2" V as they are becoming more and more common and they work great.

    Really, if you listen to no one else in this thread, listen to me. Pass that plow up no matter how good the deal is because the owner found out the hard way, and is looking to pass it along. ITS TOO F****** SMALL, especially when you get over 5 inches and you are trying to push that stuff at full angle, and you have to back out of it. Have fun! BTW, realize that when you angle a 7' 6" straight blade, it becomes a 6' 6" plow. The truck itself is 7' 6" wide. And I believe that Boss does not recommend running wings with anything over 5" of snow.

    I've got a 7'6" w/wings and have had no problems pushing snow with it. I also got a really good deal on it. Without the wings it is too small for the superdutys
