Maintenance issues when snow plowing?

I am researching Super Duty suspension/maintenance key areas when Powerstrokes are used for commercial snow removal. Any experts out there who know components that need to be watched closely during the plowing season?

not sure what year your trucks you are using but we run a 04 f450, 05 f350, 2010 f350, and 2012 f450 for plowing and we keep everything greased real well and never have had an issue with any suspension issues. the truck is made to do that kinda work, you shouldnt have to worry too much at all suspension wise

2010 F350 6.4- H&S Single turbo kit, 5" flo pro,No limit SS cold side kit, No Limit intake, MPD billet CCV/oil filler, newton leveling kit, RED Newton traction bars, custom projector retrofit in oem lights and a bunch of LED lights LOL

I'm guessing that you don't have a lot of local knowledge with you being Alabama huh?

I would checkout and look thru some threads to see what guys have been complaining about.
