Snow plows?

I am considering a plow for my '13, the new Fisher XV2 is what I am thinking. Do any of you plow snow with your 6.7? Which plow and what other mods do your trucks have?

I'd buy a beater and put a plow on it. Now way I'd put a plow on my truck. I realize some have to do it....but it's brutal on the front end.

I put a 7' bottom trip diamond/myers plow on a skid steer plate and attach that to my 75HP New Holland front end loader. That moves some freakin snow!

I have snow removal contracts for multiple car dealerships (Lexus, Ferrari, and Maserati) and a self storage center. We use our two John Deere backhoes and a JD skid steer. We have 3 trucks, one being a 2000 7.3 with a Meyers straight blade. My truck and my dads '08 450 both have the fisher extreme v's in stainless steel. Once you use an adjustable V plow you can't go back. I have the 8.5' model on my F-250. Scrapes great and stacks really well.

The only thing I do to the truck before I go out to plow is put about 2000 pounds of bagged salt in the bed along with my Meyers spreader that inserts into the hitch.

The plow is awesome, I have had zero problems with mine in the year I have owned it, my dad has had his for about 5 years now and has had zero problems with it. I highly recommend the fisher Xtreme V.
