I would have to say that on the posotive side of things if someone was going to put a plow on somthin new the best would be the Ford 6.4. This is because of the larger components in the chassis and the dana 60 axle.
The downside is that some plows are really heavy and if left on for entire seasons can damage the springs causing some undesires squat earlier than designed.
I personally like the western plows and I would reccomend a quick mount plow. This way if you are not going to use it for a while you can have it off in a couple minutes easy.
Also an air bag or air shock kit are not completely nessary but would prolong the life of the springs.
My knowlege of plows in mosttly from observations but if you use some preventive measures you can help the truck.
Oh, not likely with the 60 but there is a posibility with prolonged plowing of wearing out the front u-joints prematurely.
