    I am in the process of buying a 99 f350 powerstroke regular cab flatbed dually. I have an 05 f250 powerstroke now with a 8' ultra mount pro plow. I don't think that will cover my duals will it? So what should I do? Add wings or buy a bigger molboard?

    Wings. Cheaper, easier, and you can take them off for those tight areas.

    I would go with a wideout.

    I say go to a bigger moldboard, as wings [ fixed or wideout ] are the weak link along any curb,stump,light pole base etc. You jamb them one good time and now they are costing you money.

    9' straight or 9'6" V.
    Go big. You start small and then you will wish you had gotten a wider blade.

    I am going to stay with a straight blade just to keep my trucks the same. I was debating from a 8'6" or a 9. Does anyone know if a uni mount moldboard fit on a ultra mount, if was to find one of those cheap. It seems to be hard to come across ultra mounts in my area

    Go 9ft or bigger on a dually. 8'6 barely will cover the rear wheels.

    Will a uni mount moldboard work on the ultra mount?
