    was wondering what everyone thought about an 05 Ram 1500 rg Cab Short Bed w/ a fisher LD Plow. I have shopped quite a bit and actually the deciding factor of going with the fisher is the feeling i got from the dealer, was great to work with and thought that there service would be comparable. Plus i thought he gave ne a good price. Also, he said that I would not need to beef up the front end at all.
    Thanks for all the help

    You're going to want timbrens and possibly some ballast. I ran an 04 with a Blizzard 760LT. I had timbrens and 360 lbs of ballast. Handled to plow awesome.

    The short wheelbase will be awesome!! It's like plowing with a Tahoe. Adding ballast will help compensate for a lighter truck

    Yup, spend the $150.00 for Timbrens on that truck you will be glad you did.
