08 f350 xlt ext cab short box 6.4l, 8' boss superduty xt with wings (10' total width), expandable rear up to 10', snow ex 1075 tailgate salter. i did all the setup after purchase, and i made the rear blade

pros:

great visibility with mirrors
nice interior
decent power
good turning radius
big enough to haul 2500 lbs of salt, blades, and salter

cons:

sh!tty tires
sluggish low end (my 7.3 will walk this truck)


all in all, not a bad rig, but i sure do wish i had a 7.3 in it with twin turbos!!!!

I know its not an 08, but my bro has a Boss 8'6" power VEE. Never had any problems and boss installed it on his 04 crew 350 king ranch. He has plowed with it for about 100k and the truck is still holding up. He has about 130k on it now. Only replaced front suspension parts, ball joints, steering gear, etc...

It all depends on what you are plowing. My brother only plows his driveway and our lot at our shop. He doesn't plow for money. So i can see what your saying about hitting something, but V plows are not garbage, they work quite well when you know how to use them. Each to his own opinion.
