    Don't think wether or not it was an alum or steel body truck. You hit a pretty good solid piece of steel (in this case a snowplow) and the it's going to tear things apart

    You guys are correct thats the old steel body 250 super duty not the new aluminum one. I just upgraded to the aluminum F250 diesel and its a great truck, pulls the sled trailer very nicely.

    Sure hope the plow is ok... We need the plow truck more than we need the snow police who turn a blind eye to SWI.

    I will be interested in seeing what becomes of an aluminum body with steel fasteners in the salt after a few years.
    Seems like a recipe for serious corrosion in a hurry.

    Yeah it sure does... sounds like the equivalent of Triton's Steel Axles on their Clam Shells sitting directly against the aluminum frame bracket. Corrodes much worse than steel on steel.

    There is supposed to be a plastic isolator between the axle and the frame. I have seen many left out when swapping axles.

    Aren't pretty much all alum frame sled trailers on steel axles?. Same way w/ semi's alum frame flatbed trailers? One has to wonder tho exactly how did Ford test and how much testing did they do w/ the alum body in salt conditions?

    Ford F150s have been aluminum since 2015 but who knows what will happen in 10 more years but no issues yet that I have heard of. I keep my truck for 3 years max so not worried about rust or corrosion.

    The new super duty is a sweet ride! My platinum has massaging seats, awful nice after a long day riding lol! A lot more quiet than the old diesels are for sure!
