    Whats up everyone, well this is my second year with this set-up. I'm 21 yrs old and am trying to start my own property management business. The truck has a 3 / 1.5 toytec lift on it. The plow is only 7' wide which was all i could find when i bought it but im looking to get a 7'6'' before next year. im also looking to get a daniels pull plow this year before the snow flies..

    Very nice Tundra. Like you said, you definitely need a bigger plow.

    Hey man - nice setup! I have a rear plow you may be interested in. It's a super plow. 8', brand new blue top battery. wireless. Hooks right into your hitch, uses your 7way plug to trickle charge the battery as you plow. Great for ballast weight. I'm in the air of getting rid of it, but if I find anyone looking for a rear plow, I may consider. I used it ALL last year, until I got enough $$ to buy a new front plow. The plow is sitting out front right now. It's 4 yrs old. I'll find some pics and let me know if your interested. Perfect for residential drives. Back up to the garage, drop it, pull forward a truck length, lift, back up and use your front plow to push away. Its the SuperPlow EZ8. The biggest one made.

    Ha - can't just fold and hand over anymore. Always something. :) Have you seen the Meyers Super V for half tons? I was looking for a V plow for my Titan but didn't think of Meyers. LOL Your Tundra looks good. Are you doing more residential drives? Or commercial?

    What light you have up top? I just got the STL 18in light bar. Looks close to yours.

    lol thats funny

    to be honest I dont even remember what light I have but i know its a cheap off brand, but super bright even on a sunny day and never had a problem yet (knock on wood).

    ehh i just want a bigger straight blade...i do all resi driveways..trying to build up capital to invest in more equipment and stuff to be able to handle bigger accounts. working hard to sustain this as a life-long career.

    thats an awesome lookin truck, i wish i had the funds for a bigger blade but for right now this will have to do..mine needs new tires for inspection so im saving up for 295/70 nitto terra grapplers. i was even thinking of bringing it to my buddy to weld some extensions on the plow and call it a day lol.

    295/70 s will be very wide for snow traction , narrower is better for plowing.

    There - I'm on my laptop to post a pic! lol I use the Western HTS.

    As for tires - Mine are like 265/55/17 for plowing. I run 295/70/17 in summer. I ran the 265 last year and only put in 4 wheel drive for about 10 secs.

    I really want to buy a Tundra of my own and either put a Fisher 7.5' XBlade or an 8' HD on it.

    FYI - I have the tires you're wanting, one word, don't. I am running the 295/70/17 Terra Grapplers and can tell you that they pretty much suck on packed snow/ice. They do very well in the rain, sun and sand, and hold their own in dry powdery snow, but wet or packed snow or ice they get really sketchy. As soon as I can swing it I'll be going to 285/70 Goodyear Duratracs. Before the TerraCrap's I was running 285/70 Goodyear Silent Armor ProGrades which were amazing year round and I got over 50k out them, but like that the Duratracs are a bit more aggressive.
