    You are going to get a many different responses as to which type/make/model of plow you should get. I like my Meyer Xpress mount because I split my time between plowing, checking sites and moving equipment and personnel.

    You should be fine with an 8' blade. You always have the option of adding wings.

    I think an 8 foot no smaller fords are pretty wide trucks. I am biased I am a western guy. I don't think the other brands are that bad either. Just like trucks they all have there advantages btu they all work.

    All the common brands pride themselves on an easy attach/detach (not that some still aren't easier than others) so going with the brand that has the best local dealer support is more important than attachment features. It doesn't matter how easy it is to attach/detach if it doesn't work and you can't get parts for it anyway.

    I would say Boss, but I also say Boss to anything.

    Check out Bossplow.com and see if you have a dealer. It's an excellent plow for the money, one of the best on the market.

    We've found that with the Super Duties, you really need an 8 1/2' plow. The older trucks you could get away with an 8' plow on, but the SD is a bit bigger.

    I have had a 9-2 boss v on my last three 350s an 02 05 and 2010. I never thought it was to heavy again go with the plow that has the a place you can get at parts quick. I did have an 8 footer for a few months on my 02 and it was a little narrow when you would angle the blade and turn.

    If you are serious about plowing, you want to upgrade to the X code springs rated at 6k for your truck, and you want an 8' 2" V if you go the Boss route.
