The 8' fisher is a 29' blade, adding extra height and weight. For and F 150, go with a 7 1/2 fisher, weigh less, just doesn't have the extra height and support of a 8'. Or you could be crazy like i was once and put a 9' on a half ton gmc, destroyed the truck.

I'd go with an 8' Sno-Way, been using them for years, they work good for me. And we had our first on a K1500 GMC, since then we've added plows and now the 8' straight blades will be hanging on S-10s. No Timbrens either.

A fellow former contractor (now a police officer) used as his front line trucks two, 1985 F150 4x4, 300 6 cylinder stick with 8 foot Fishers. The front ends were no problem, but he would replace clutches every spring.
