Re: Need advice re: 2004 F-150 H. snow plow option
Dear 351, Thanks for your thought provoking response to my confusion as to the feasibility of planting a plow on the not yet released 2004 F-150 w/plow package. The dealer did assure me that the 2004 F-150 wil have a factory option for a snow plow. I guess I will have to continue to use my 2003 carerra 4 wd; which has plenty of power and torque.. but even a light snow causes me to just spin the tires as soon as the plow gets filled with especially the wet (heavy) snows. Perhaps they sell spiked tires
for the 911.. but I hate that smell of the burning rubber when my oversized tires grind into the wheel wells (only when I try to go left or right).. not to mention the bottoming out of the front end whenever I hitch up the plow... the darn thing just keeps scraping the ground on all but the smoothest roads.. Perhaps I should downsize my plow from 9 ft to 7 feet in width,, that would drop the weight another 450 lbs!..Thanks again for your wake up call. Regards, the guy who they wouldn't allow on the truck forums due to low IQ..(g)
I guess I'll just use the carrera for fun..but my wife's gonna be happy.. as I made a real mess in the rec room when I welded the plow on to the frame .. well thats another story for another time.. Regards..
