My buddy sold his POS plow truck I used last year, so I had no choice:

Pay no mind to the truck being filthy:)

8'0" Super Duty Poly, only option I got was the snow flap($199).

Total after tax was like $4715 or somewhere in there.

I just had a 8' BOSS installed for $4100 tax included.

As for snow........hope the Almanac is wrong. It says warm and dry winter and a wet summer for '08.........along with Florida dry and cooler should you try to excape to the sunny beach this winter.

That Boss is really nice. Do you have timbrens or anything on the front of that F250?

What are timbrens? Is that some sort of suspension item?

Didn't modify the front of the truck, but it's got the factory plow package, which I believe involves stiffer front springs and a larger-diameter sway bar.

carcrz - I hope you're wrong:) I went right to my shop and dropped it on the floor so I wouldn't get weird looks... The Smarthitch is awesome.

Yes, timbrens are a rubber spring that your suspension bottoms on instead of the factory bump stops. It shortens the suspension travel a little, but it is way better for your springs. Its way cheaper to put on a set now than to fix a broken or sagging spring latter.

five0- Timbren's are for either the front or the back suspension. They are solid rubber "stops" that you can mount on the rear springs so you truck only squats so far down then it hits these things and stops. Same as the front. If your truck already has "plow prep" then there is no need for them. Mine also has factory "plow prep" and I'm carrying a 8.5 Fisher Extreme V blade with zero problems and I'm sure mine weighs more than yours, (my plow is right around 1k lbs).

Did you shop around at all? I had the same plow except steel installed on my truck for $4100 OTD.

Anyways looks good but I also hear it will be a slower winter this year. We'll see.

Colorado weather, especially at 7000 feet and above, changes by the day. We had 70s on 10/20 then low 20s w/snow the next day. Luckily, this fall has been very mild. I think we received 200+ inches snow last season.

you wont need any modifications, if it was a 150, yes a 250, your fine

I should come out there and buy one then. Out of 2 local (with-in 45 miles) Boss dealers, the cheapest installed pric for a 8' superduty is $4964 OTD.

BTW, the truck and plow look good. I'm also hoping that the alminac is wrong about this winter!
