You will kill the F150 doing commercial plowing with it and you will struggle with the F350 if you dont have a ton of weight in the back for traction. I would also be concerned about the weight rating on the front axle on the F350 as it was not designed to carry a plow like a 4x4 is but I have seen it done before but I don't know how they hold up. I also know that you would need at least a 9ft plow on the F350 due to the width of the truck and thats getting up there in weight. My suggestion would be to find a older used plow truck on E-Bay or Craiglist for doing this because you can normally pick up a decent truck with a plow for what you would spend on a new plow and there should be a ton of them up for sale right now. The other thing is to check out www.plowsite.com

You will be fine with the F-350 with proper weight in the back! My friend has the same set up & does just fine!

I don't think any of the supercrews are rated for a plow
