Snow plow FAQ: Important dos and don’ts

SNOW PLOW FAQ
Q.  I HAVE A SNOW PLOW ON MY TRUCK, AND I INSTALLED A LEVELLING KIT ON THE FRONT END. THIS RAISED THE FRAME ABOUT 2 INCHES. DO YOU HAVE A KIT FOR A RAISED VEHICLE?

A.  If you measure between frame and axle (unloaded), we will be able to design a custom snow plow kit for your truck. However, this only applies to vehicles with a straight axle.

Furthermore, if this involves an independent suspension, we do not have a kit for you. (There are too many variables, i.e. angles involved to guarantee the safety and integrity of such a kit.)

Q.  DO YOU HAVE A SEVERE SERVICE KIT FOR THE FRONT END OF MY FORD F350 PICKUP?

A.  We do not recommend a severe-service kit for the front end of a light-duty pickup with a snow plow. Timbren SES front end kits can handle the use of a snow plow or winch.

There are, however, severe-service kits for the rear suspension. (We caution against using a large plow not designed for your truck.)
