    F150 would be OK for light residential plowing but the front end won't last long under medium to heavy commercial plowing. The F150 has a payload package that you order specifically to get the plowing package. It adds payload and increases front axle weight rating. You get the 5.4L engine and 3.73 or 4.10 gears.
