Bought 2004 and have a ? about plows

Presently I own the F350 V10, and have the 8ft curtis plow for it. I don't use it for commerical snowplowing.
I just bought an 04 and since I'm only plowing my driveway will the F-150 handle and 8 ft plow? Or should I go back to using a smaller plow.
I would expect that I'll go through tierod ends.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated

An 8 footer will be too heavy for the F150. I'd look at a Fisher 7.5' light duty or one of their competitors. I ran this plow on my 03 with no problems what so ever.

Thats what I was thinking.

I use the curtis plow (800lb) for the V10.
When I had a F150 before, 98 I used the 7ft poly from Curtis and it worked great.

I plow my driveway and a few others around town and have done this for the past 3 years and haven't had a problem but only time will tell what problems will arise, as of now though i have had no problems although i did add HD springs in the front of the truck to help handle the weight.
