F-250 Problems Matching a Plow

    Got a 2009 F-250 Super Cab, 8' Bed FGWAR is 4800 lbs. 5.4L Gas, V-8.

    I can't find any matches for Boss snowplows, or any V-Plows for that matter. The plow matching software on their sites say there are none available for this model. I was hoping to put a Boss Power VXT on it. Am I not looking at something right here? Can you help me find a reliable V Plow match please. The local dealer sells only Boss and Snow Dogg.

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    Not a problem Boss v plows are a good match for the F250/350.Go to 9.2 if you can.

    problem seems to be the axle weight.

    So then adding the 5600 lb. front coil springs in leau of the current 4800 lb. ones won't fix it? I want to operate a small 7'6 or 8'1 Boss V Plow. The axle couldn't hold up even after this upgrade?

    Don't worry,go with the Boss v plow. That truck will hold anything.

    No matter what you do It will not change the legality of the sticker on the door. Personally it will handle whatever you want on there.
