    For near free? You sure you didn't steal it? Lol a 8'blade would be good. I'm partial to fishers.

    From what I understand, anything that you would put on a F-250, you can put on an Excursion, it just may not be recommended and some dealers would refuse to do it. If it is a diesel, you may have to have a tad lighter plow.

    excursion is the same thing as f250/350. If you are looking for mounts for a Fisher, you want (#7159 99-04 super duty.) You could have a plow from 7'6" to 8'6" long. I got a 01 f250 with a 8' fisher HD. you may need to add a leaf to the front leaf springs tho.

    Interesting thread i found me a 2001 v10 with 150k on it tonite going to go look at it this week. I love excursions but never thought of one to use for plowing. It would be my back up plow truck and daily driver for my contracting business. I only drive about 5k a year so using a diesel doesnt make sense to me.

    I run 8 1/2 MVP on mine. Works great for plowing. Same install as a F250.

    guy I used to plow with had the diesel and he had a western pro, that thing could push alot of snow and it was like a limo inside, just stinks for smaller areas

    Most excursions run a lighter front spring than their SD counterpart, though the axle is still rated the same. You may need/want to replace the fron springs with "V" or "W" code if you want to run a larger plow.
