It is an option that goes well if you do plow. The bigger alternator helps with the head lights from dimming while operating plow with stereo, extra lights, phones plugged, etc. The different front end meant little as I installed a lift.
I wonder how long the OEM's last. My 04, F-250, 6.0 has 44k of no off-road driving & they still seem fine. But sometimes things wear out so slowly that's it's hard to tell. My OEM steering stabilizer went at about 42K & I only knew from the hydraulic fluid on driveway.
To me the truck feels more controlled, more settled, especially on bumpy PA roads when you have better shocks. It's one of those things where you don't notice how bad factory shocks are until you replace them with a quality shock.
Hello dualwheels66, I have an F250 with the plow package (I wish it didn't, but I bought it used) I'm not going to plow with it and might change the front springs due to the harsh front end ride, what brand of shocks did you get?
Something that takes the jolt out of bumps would be great, but I don't need a harsher ride. Its bumpy everywhere....
