    Well, if you lift the truck they will need to lower the plow frame. It looks stupid most of the time when you got this big hunk of metal hanging real far below the bumper.

    I traded in my cobra mustang convertable for my truck in 04. I regrete it every warm summer night and thank God I traded it in on every snowy day. We get more snow then sun in Cleveland so its OK.

    I personally think a f-150 crew with a plow is going to push the front axles gvwr to much. I would go for the jeep with a plow since it has a solid axle up front, and they are more nimble then the f-150 for plowing.

    Or, do like me and get a f-150 as a daily with a plow and get a lifted jeep to play with on the weekends.
