Plowing

Just FYI folks you cannot plow with the 2011. If i knew that before now I would have opted for the 2010. Something to do with the EPAS system. Electronic power assist steering.

Apparantly you can with the 6.2L F150 which is only available on the Crew and Raptor. You have to use the '09/'10 mounts.

...seems pretty silly to me but I'm no expert by any means

I think the fools at Ford should have stated this at time of purchase. It is a 4x4 truck not a Focus. Anyone want to buy a pretty but useless truck, cause thats whats it is for me now.

ive seen what a season of plowing does to a 3/4 and 1ton truck id hate to see it on a 1/2 ton....

I guess you could use those crappy tire plastic blades that dont weigh anything.....





Im sure in that teeny tiny fine print somewhere it states it..... just need to be a lawyer to find it lol
