    Anyone running a v-plow on an F-150? Are there any manufactures that make them for an F-150? I know most are rated for a F-250.

    If you have a set up i sure would love to see a photo.

    I'll never understand why Ford did 7 lugs for a few years. :dizzy:

    Depends on the year of F 150 and if it has electronic steering or not.

    The Boss Says no vee

    No plow applications are recommended for your vehicle.
    Notes: Ford does not recommend a snowplow be installed on any F150 models. For more information review Ford Quality Bulletin Q-200R1 at https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas/topics/qvmp.html

    but id get a clevis frame and go for a 6'6" UTV Power-VXT Steel Blade...thats just me

    and fix that missing lug

    2012 F150 with a Standard Duty 7'6"

    I was going to put a Meyer Super V LD on it, but the price on this used Boss was a deal

    Do you have the 5.0 or eco boost (so electronic power steering). I just mad a purchase , 2014 f150 5.0 4x4. My dealer has been around a long time and will honor my warranty, I also paid $4000 extra for bumper to bumper 5yr/60,000 WITH PLOW. The warranty would have been half that without the plow. I have not decided between sno way 26, something else OR I have also considerd the utv v plow. I don't do heavy street clearing, a few lots and a 180 unit condo complex, the v would sure come in handy at the complex. The truck does not do the majority of the work at the condo complex, that's done with a cherokee and a skid steer. But I paid good money for this truck and it's gotta earn its keep.

    Snoway 26R weighs 590 pounds and will move a lot more snow than a straight blade, and depending on your situation may work even better for you than a v plow. They will also work with the new F series with electronic steering.

    Thanks Harleyjeff. While I am still interested in Rmg's engine/tranny setup and epas, I was also interested in if the frame mounting is the same on the epas as opposed to the 6.2. I need to make a decision fairly quickly.

    Send a PM to "Basher". He's the resident expert on Snoways around here. Sells them, works on them, and very intelligent. I love my V plow, but I think it I were to do it over again I'd definitely get an "R" series Snoway. The wings on them don't expand like a wideout or Blizzard, but you can angle them individually and use it as a containment plow. Very productive. If you got one you'd wonder why you ever considered anything else.

    Thanks much! I've talked with Basher and if I go with a 26 r hope to maybe even order from them if it's feasible. I own 3 old 25D's that will be around for a while as well.


    Still interested in your response when you get time Rmg

    It is setup with the 5.0 and electronic power steering. My brother and I did the install. There is a bracket underneath the truck that had to be cut to mount the back crossmember brace for the plow mount. I was slightly worried about the plow drawing to much power from the steering when going up and down but everything works fine. The truck drops about 3/4" with the Boss Standard Duty. I am considering adding wings to the plow as well.

    I can get more pics if you would like. I had a snoway on my old 2004 F150 but I didn't care for it. I had a 250 with a boss v for my last truck. I think boss is built slightly more heavy duty. I also like the mounting system a lot more.
