    Here is another in regards to Light Plows for Compact Trucks:
    As long as your Meyer comes in under 500#s with the mount installed then you might be alright. Also add some Salt and a Bed Extender or Cargo holder out back to act as a ballast. My Salter does that for me quite well. Good Luck with your search.

    PS Remember to have a Tow Packaged equipped Dakota or a Trans Cooler installed.

    The Western Midweight Poly 7'6" comes in a 27" Blade Height, but weighs in at 532# WO the mount. If your not a fan of the Snoway Plows because of the clear Poly, then go with the Snoway SS which in a 26" 7'6" which comes in at 474#s WO the mount.

    Blizzard also has a 7'6" 29" Blade Height for 465#s in Poly. You might want to modify the mounting bracket to gain clearance from scraping... but still a much better option then the other light duty plows that average 22" in height, and lighter then 500#s for those commercial based plows that start at 26" in height.

    Meyers STL in 7'6" comes in at 25" blade height, but still weighs over 520# WO the mount. The Fisher 7'6" comes in at 26" but is still considered non commercial and weighs at 487# WO the mount. Since most mounts ~ 60# according to Fisher, you can see all your options out, and figure which is the best way to go...

    Thanks for info :drinkup:

    I don't have a problem with Snoway or Blizzard, I've always had Western and Meyers.
