    I have an 05 F250 that just hit 60 thousand miles. It is due to go in for service on Tuesday, what are some of the things I should be asking them to check? I plan on putting a plow on it within a month or so. Any help would be great.

    Thank you

    get transmission/torque converter flushed and refilled with new fluid...you want to check all your suspension components ie. sway bar links, shocks, tie-rods, balljoints...plows are hell on front ends you always want the front end in tip top shape to deal with a plow..have the u joints in the front end looked at, if they are the non-greasable kind, they prolly need done... i have an 04 and put about 1000.00 in the front end this fall (i did the easy stuff myself, hired the hard stuff)..also u may want newer batter and have the alternator checked since the plow will draw off that..good luck
