    I just bought a 2000 ford f250 7.3L crew cab with the 8ft bed. I went on westerns website and found that i could use a 7'6" midweight. Would a 7'6 Pro Unimount work on the this truck or would i be overloading the axle?

    Let me know what you guys think.

    like abbe said go for the 8ft if you could but yes a 7.6 will work in fact if you wanted to an 8.6 would work 7.6 is perfect no problem.

    That is an enormous truck and the 7.5 will be like a toy on it. I don't know if there's a plow you can put on there to avoid running over your windrows in a turn, but going bigger thana 7.5 will help. Good luck

    I wouldn't go with a mid weight. At least go 7.5 or 8 you won't regret it. Do you already have a unimout mount on your truck?

    I think I'm going to try and keep both trucks. My 95 is set up for the plow already, is about 4.5 ft shorter, and is good running wood/ plow truck. If I sell it, i may get $1800 for it. If i get the mount put on and make the necessary adjustments to the wiring, i am looking at about a $1k. Not really worth the money to rig out my newer truck. Great, problem solved. now my biggest problem is selling this to my wife. I think we agreed upon me selling my old truck ,or something along those lines.
