Is anyone else considering moving the snow plow from their current truck to the F-150 Lightning when you are able to get one? I currently have a Boss Stainless DXT plow on my 2002 GMC 2500HD that the Lightning will be replacing. The frame for the Lightning from what I have seen so far appears to be the same as the current ICE F150 that potentially would allow for use of the same mount for installing the plow mechanically. My bigger question would be have the vehicle designers considered the extra load of running a plow off the 12V system for the majority of the vehicle electronics? Would you possibly need to install a supplemental 12V battery for running the plow off of that is charged off of the 12V supply to the vehicle electronics? I fully expect some contractors will be looking at using one of the Pro models for plowing during the winter months with it being part of their annual business today with an ICE pickup.

If the Lightning operates like the Mach E, the high voltage battery will continually keep the charge up in the 12v battery. The Lightning has even more capacity for such things as it has the ProPower Onboard able to continually produce 110v power, too. I don't see a need for an extra 12v battery to operate a plow on the Lightning.
