I've been reading the messages regarding Ford limits on F250 snowplows. While I was aware they would void a warranty I took the chance anyway because I needed both a family & work vehicle. If I am willing to accept the risk of voiding my warrenty is it only the front end I am voiding or the whole warranty? More importantly, will a snow plow installer install a plow if I want it even though it is not manufacture recommended? How do Mejier & Diamond Plows electric hydrolic snowplows compare to let's say Fisher or Western? Any advise is most welcome. Mac in Boston.
