    Is a 7'4" plow too big for a 2004 Toyota Tacoma 6 cylinder 4X4?

    Thanks

    Id go with a 7' Sport Duty Boss. The homesteader is widely known as a pos.

    Really?? I have had one on my 2006 Tacoma for 4 years now and it has served well.

    I do prefer an after-market motor but the plow does what it was designed to do well.

    To answer the question- for the width of your truck, the 6'8" is ample. You would have no problem pushing the 7'4" if you wanted to.

    We install 7'6" blades on tacos all the time. it will handle a 7'4" no problem.

    I've had a 7'4" Homesteader on my 2005 Tacoma since I bought it...never had any problems.

    To the original poster. I have a 7'6: Curtis Homepro for sale. I have mounts and wiring for both late model Tundras and 2000-2004 Tacoma. Call me if you are interested.

    I would go with the Boss Sport Duty. The Homesteader is a very small plow w/ rubber trip springs, and the blade height is minimal. Most of them that I see do not have any additional plow lights, and they are mounted very low so that it doesn't block your factory headlights. The 7' Boss Sport Duty is only 372lbs, and it is much more plow than the Homesteader if you ask me.

    Then I guess you haven't been looking at Homesteaders, because they do, indeed, have plow lights.
