    i want to install a blizzard 8-10 plow on my f-350 diesel...can this be done...plow seems like it is very 'heavy'. blizzard weighs just over a 1000 pounds...truck does have 'plow prep package'.

    any feedback is appreciated.

    Yes you can no problem. I have installed one on a f250sd with a psd
    It handles the plow just fine.

    Just bought 3 of the 810's for my new F350 dumps. You're right, it is heavy. We put an extra spring in each of our trucks to add some strength.

    your truck will handle the weight fine but you will need some balast in the back. i think i had v code front springs, rated at 5200 lbs and just replaced them with x codes, rated at 6000 lbs. the reason i did was to raise the front up some, about 1 3/4" to even my truck out and i was close the the springs carring capaicty. i use about 950 lbs of steel for balast plus a snow blower and 150 lbs or so of salt. this brings me right to my GVWR.
