Plowing with a 2004 Excursion

I have a 2004 Ford Excursion and was thinking about putting a plow on it this year. I was wondering if anyone has done this or has any suggestions about doing this. I've heard some guys saying to replace the front springs with heavy duty ones but other than that I wasn't sure if I would need anything else.

Any suggestions would be great thanks!

I would think that the updated super duty spring and new shocks would be a must. The extra weight of the plow and mount would be too much for the stock set up. Those springs are crap. I don't and have never plowed with my trucks, so I don't know what else might be necessary.

I probably wouldn't do it, excursions obviously don't allow for as much body flex as a pickup would
