I would put a 8'2" Boss V or the 8.5' Western V on it myself. You may even find that they will put the 9'2" Boss on that truck, in which case I probably would.

what are you going to plow?
I have a f350 crew cab, i cant plow small lots. i cant turn the truck
around. i went with a 8 ft western. (great plow) i wish i would have gotten a 9 ft, so im ordering a set of pro wings.
if your not doing drives, or small lots, i would say go big!
regards,
jack

You guys will have to understand that i'm just a kid, just going on 17 so the budget is a little tight. I'm planning on selling my first truck that I bought to get a little money for the plow. I was leaning towards a 9ft western straight, can anybody give me some ideas on prices.

Tim,the western 9 ft straight is a good choice,especially since its light,and strong,and reliable,at 750 lbs,it wont kill yout front end to bad.If you had the F350,id tell you to get the biggest V theyll put on it,but your front end isnt nearly as strong.If your going used,the western 8-9 ft should be easy to find,its a popular plow.

like tim1075, i am turning 18, what would be a nice set-up for my 1997 F-350 XLT, Crew Cab, SRW. I am leaning towards the V plow, but i am not sure. What company makes the best V plow, whats the biggest size, and what do they run.

thanks

I have yet to see a plow run, they all seem to need a truck to push them along.
Do a search, you will find that you are limited to what plow you can install on a crew cab.
BTW, since when can such young kids afford such nice trucks?
My first truck was 20 yrs old and a beater. Took me till I was 29 till I got my first new truck.

I don't know what type of plowing your both planning on (residential, commercial) but if you can afford a v, go for it! If not then any plow that has the best dealer support in your area.

Same here, those of you that think my parents bought my truck are wrong. i've been working since 8 and i split the money between my truck fund , college fund and the little that went in my pocket. All the money for gas, the truck, insurance I pay for, i'm not like the rest of the school where their parents give them credit cards, i know because i end up filling up a lot of their cars at work.


get a 9' western,fisher,diamond whatever you can find used for a good price. i think someone here knew of a 9' western uni-mount that came off a dodge flatbed for a good price.
