maybe you should also check out the fisher LD (light duty) plow, and i usually see a lot of f-150's with sno ways. not really familiar with the sno way, but fishers have a good reputation and are the same company as western.

Meyer suggests the STL 7.5 which weighs 469 lbs.

Meyer STL 7.5 (steel)

Western has a similar plow. LSX 72 (steel) which weighs 480 lbs. Westernplows.com



Any brand you go with looks like you are limited (safely) to under 500 lbs total weight.

The Western standard poly (USY 75) is 614 lbs. Your dealer could tell you if that could be used on your truck. If so, that would be my choice.

Blazes,
I have had great luck with westerns on 1/2 ton Gms over
the past 10 or so years....Your truck is a 1/2 ton right ?
Check with your ford dealer. It is a no no now to plow
with them now and they won"t honor your warranty if
you break it.........Unless u have a real good friend at
the dealer...Thats why i went to 3/4 ton THis time.........
good luck keep us posted......................Geo

I have noticed that many companies make plows specific for the F150. I think I would still somehow upgrade the suspension in order to handle the weight better.

MY F-150

THE F-150 I PURCHASED IS A 7700 SERIES WHICH IS JUST A F-150 WITH A HEVIER SUSPENSION, IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE RATED JUST SHORT OF A 3/4 TON PICKUP..THE DEALER SAYS THE WARRANTY APPLIES AS LONG AS ITS NOT DAMAGE CAUSED BY ABUSE..(RAMMING INTO ICE BANKS ETC..)THANKS FOR ALL THE ADVICE GUYS....HOPE TO HEAR MORE OPINIONS..BATTLIN_BLAZES

Fisher has some light and medium duty plows out, for that truck.

Talk to your local fisher dealer, the choice is up to you on the light duty or medium duty. I would get the medium duty, the mounts are the same and the dealer will never know the difference. I am pretty sure the medium duty is approved for your truck.

I have a friend with a 2000 F-150 7700 gvw and he is running the st-90 meyer unit. My guess is that you should be able to run any 7.5' plow on that truck. Stay away from the ld series fisher they are junk, a travisty to the fisher name IMO.
The poly western would be a great choice, with the new mounting system, on and off should be alot easier than the uni mount. You wont be able to run the 7.5 pro poly, but the regular duty poly should be fine.
