    Hi,I'm running a '03 F250 with a Ext. cab 8'bed and a 8' foot Fisher I think that the 7.5 may be a little short if in a turn while plowing just my opinion. hope this helps. :redbounce JT

    You can do it with a 7.5, but it's not right. You'll be driving over and packing down the snow you didn't pick up with your plow. You need at least an 8'. I would actually go a little wider if I had to do it again. I have an 04 F250 SC 5.4 w/ an 8' Fisher MM2.

    Is it a long bed or short bed? Either way you should run a 8' or longer blade on it. I upgraded my moldboard to an 8' and it is still too short. Put a larger tranny cooler in the truck when you get it, as well as a tranny temp gauge.

    I would go with the short bed, and thank-you for your input, folks...........
