    Calling out you guys with f250s and exv's. How do they handle it? The v and scoop would help me out a lot with the places i plow. im pretty sure my truck has a leveling kit in the front by the looks. It doesnt drop at all with my 8ft straight blade.

    You will be fine with that plow on that truck. It is a great plow.

    I run 9/6 XVs on mine, 02 and 06, both have spring upgrades and run ballast. One with older polycaster the other with concrete block. Sure it's big but it works just fine..

    I have a 9'6" V on my 02 F350 Diesel. My plow is over 1,000lbs total and the front doesn't drop, I have the lighter duty front springs too-5200lb rating I believe. You'll be fine.

    I had a 8.5 Western MVP and then a Blizzard 810 on my 2000 F250 and I now have a 9.5 Vee plow on my 2012 F250 and they handle the weight just fine.

    I use the 8'6" ex v on my 04' f250 and have had no issues at all. Perfect set up with a half ton of sand in back. What I like best is that its so nimble when you pull into vee mode the blades hug the body tight and you can make sharp turns real easy. Good luck!!

    i have a 9.5 xtreme v on my 2002 f250 and it handless it excellently. even fishers webite says it will be fine, and you know when the manufacterer says it will be fine then it def can handle it.
