    Both Fords are F-250's
    The Grey Ford is a 1989 with only 80,000 on the clock but northeast winters have taken its toll on the body. About two years ago it had Zero Rust. It seems to happen overnight.

    Bet your happy so far this year. I have a feeling that Feb. we are gonna get hammered. My most reliable weather source is a Farmer and he says Feb. and March we are gonna get some big snows and much colder temps.
    I am about half Seasonal so I really don't care either way. It is nice to get out at least a couple of times a year though.

    I hope so too!
    Farmers seem to know the best. This guy is pretty accurate for the last couple of years. Last year he predicted around 12 plowable events and we had 13payup payup .

    I would love a Repeat:drinkup: .

    Thanks all,

    Pools- the 97 holds the plow pretty well, I have had the springs re-arched, and that has helped with the sagging. Being that it is a diesel it comes with the heavier springs to begin with, but over time these ford front ends need to be re-done. Every ford truck that I have owned has had the same problems with the springs. I remember having two Bronco's and I put airbags in the coils to help for weight and the other I stumbled across a pair of heavy duty coils. That helped with those two trucks. Now that I own my first GM I was a little disappointed that I had to add Timbrens to the front end. I also cranked the torsion bars and that helped quite a bit.

    One day maybe the manufacturers of these $40k- $50k trucks can make these things handle the weight a little better.
