Not really, the superduties love having a boss v up front. You're thinking of the chev independent front ends, just can't take a heavy plow without wearing out their front ends early.

In the 70's & 80's, it was the Ford's that shucked out wheel bearings when a heavy plow was mounted on them. As far as I know, the early 90's were still doing that. Did Ford correct that problem after I retired in 1997?

i dont know i did everything wrong with a 94 ford and a plow,it was taken to a truck equipment dealer for the plow instalation, this was a 1/2 ton! truck, they not only installed the plow from front to back but the truck itself, got front air springs so it could be adjusted for plow, or no plow, and the rear got a extra pair of leaves added, i ran the truck 160,000 miles in the mountains then sold it when my new job at the time would no longer allow me time to use the snow plow, never had a front end problem, and i was expecting one the whole time

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

The solid Ford axles fair a lot better than the IFS GMs. Actually, you voided the warranty of any 3/4 or 1 ton vehicle up until 2012(ish). (This was internet talk so it could be off. I never verified it myself)

Before the superduty the high pinion Dana 60 front end on the F350's was fine, nothing spectacular. The Dana 50 IFS mess wasn't the best but I've never been around one personally.

The 99 and up superduties use a different Dana 50 and Dana 60 (All Dana 60 since 2002 but the outers are the same on both anyways) The newer 50/60 has some issues with seals and needle bearings due to people and even dealers thinking they are maintenance free due to the sealed unit wheel bearings but other than that they are rugged units.

The Chevy 2500HD/3500 4wd IFS up until the last couple of years, most brands of plow were too heavy and you really had to have something like a sander behind the rear axle or you exceeded your front axle weight. Even still they eat through ball joints, bushings, idlers arms and tie rods ends like crazy when wearing a plow. Friend had two landscaping companies which do snow removal in the winter with a half dozen 2500/3500's and he loves the nice ride of the chevs. Over and over the sealed ball joints went first, so in go lifetime greaseables that last a bit longer but at least have warrantee and bolts instead of rivits so they change out faster.
