how much plowing do you plan to do ? you can get composite plows which are more expensive but less stress on your front end... (lighter)

im not sure if ford ever offered a plow option for the f150's something to look into beefier front end...

it will wear out your front end alot faster...

i worked at delta spring and chassis installing plows, in an ideal situation having a 350 or 450 would be the best way to go, but like you said sometimes you gotta work with what you got, i've installed tons of plows on 150's, chev and dodge 1500s, i've even put em on rangers and jeeps, they all work great, it just limits you to the size of the blade you can put on and salt equipment you can carry if you choose, i'm not too sure about other brands but i've found with the boss brand plows we carried the poly blades were heavier than the steel blades, the advantage being the blades don't rust and the snow doesn't stick to them like the steel ones, the poly blades were more expensive than the steel

any way you slice it.......it's gonna be damn hard on your truck. F-250 or F-350 would be way more prefferred.......but go with a smaller plow (7 footer max) and try to take it easy.
