    i am trading my truck in for 2007 f250 or f 350, heres the thing, if i get the new 250 i will also get a new western v plow with it, 7 1/2, if i get the the 350 i will keep my 7 1/2 pro plow thats a couple years old. the dealer will sell me the v plow installed on either truck for 4500, and give me 1500 trade on my plow, so if i get the 350 my payment will be the same as the 250 with the brand new plow, so 350, or 250 with the v plow

    You need a wider plow for that truck, get at least a 8.# foot plow.

    350, no sense in cutting yourself short if your getting one.

    I have the 250 and also have a V-Blade. Mines 8 1/2' and I would never go smaller. Get the dealer installed blade. That way if you have a warranty problem with either the truck or blade the dealership will already know who you are.

    is it a diesel or gasser? Have you looked into just buying the 350 and then going to a BOss dealer and trading yours in that way? If its a diesel, you will want a 350 for sure especially if you want a bigger v-plow.

    Have you considered a 2006? The dealers are still full of them and seriously giving them away. Friend of mine at the dealership mentioned they are willing to lose $1k to $2k on the 2006's just to get rid of them. Around here I have heard of $10k to $14k off sticker.

    If you plan on keeping the truck for a while 1 year is not going to matter that much.

    I am pretty sure you could save enough if not more on a 2006 to get a free plow, comparing it to a 2007.

    I'd go for the 350 myself, with an 8.5 foot plow. Also the point about a 2006 is defintiely worth a thought, especially since factory warranties don't start until the vehicle is sold.

    Just watch out for the sneaky dealers who offer up a DEMO discount on a new truck. Then the warranty started when they put the truck in service. NOT when YOU take delivery.
