8 foot, even if you do just driveways, i would never get anything more than an 8. its heavier. i use a 10 footer mounted on a freightliner at work but thats over kill unless you do lots

yea im thinking i will most likely end up with a 7 6 because im on a very tight budget here like to stay under $500 for a whole set up i dont care if i have to rig a few things together but i basicly want it for driveways and maybe if i can get enuff people in town i may get a newer one or an 8ft but just for now for personal use etc dont neeeeeed one but i waaaaaannnnnt one (i like to play)

so i have the option of 7 6 all the way to 9 6 then? i havent measured yet but i would assume that a 7 6 will cover the wheel tracks

i have a 7'6 on my 02 f250 and imo its kinda small for the truck. the 06 f350 srw has an 8'6 v-blade and its just about perfect parking lots. if your using for personal use stick with a straight blade otherwise get a v-blade.

An 8 foor is the smallest you're going to want on that truck, any smaller and you're going to be rumming over the snow everytime you start to turn. My 8 foot is just wide enough. 9 foot isnt too bad but its a but much for a SRW truck.

A 9 foot plow is actually supposed to be taken off right after a storm, its overwidth for the road since its 108" wide. Legal limit is 102"
