    Hi there. I'm looking for a recommendation for a decent but not ridiculously expensive plow for an '05 Toyota Tundra. Any thoughts?

    I checked out Sno-way's website. I'm a bit concerned about the "May require major modifications to the air dam and /or fascia." when I put in the info to get the right model - sounds expensive :)

    Most plows will be doing the same thing to your truck.

    Sno-way, unless you want to tear apart the front end and a regular basis. The DP will be a parts saver for your front end.

    My vote is for a 7.5' Boss Sport Duty.

    I have a 05 Tundra that I plow with, only Western plow listed on their website that could be factory installed was the Suburbanite. With some work, had the HTS installed. Even with the Suburbanite, you'll probably have to upgrade on your front suspension to eliminate front end sag from the plow weight. This would cause tire rub on wheel wells while turning with plow equipped. I would stay away from any leveling kits. These are cheap plastic pieces installed in the springs or blocks in between the mounts. I went with the Rancho Quicklift MYRide complete suspension system...

    Hope this helps from a guy with the same truck

    I got quote on one today for my 2004 Tundra, $4500 installed...I need a tractor with a loader for a year or two so I might go that way.

    If I could find a contractor to do my driveway I would, everybody is only interested in commercial jobs.

    The frame mounting brackets, all the electrical, etc has to be installed by the purchaser?

    You can have the dealer install it also.

    So the Suburbanite mount worked okay? I have a 2012 Toyota Tundra with a Western plow that I want to put on it. I am looking for the mount and if anyone knows where I can buy direct the Ultramount 2 system that would be great
