    Newbie here so be gentle.

    Short synopsis. Gramps and the parents are getting older and live across town next door to each other. I have a 300' driveway myself. Been thinking about a plow for our truck. It's a Dodge 3500 SRW Megacab for towing our toyhauler. It's a big rig obviously.

    Found a RT-2 V-power on Craigslist. Looks pretty new in the pictures. Price seems right but not wickedly good. It came off a Dodge 2500 and it's complete. So should go right on. I don't know if it was gas of diesel though. Seems like a good approach so I'm tempted.

    Dodge doesn't recommend a plow for this truck. In fact, as I look, I'm not sure they recommend it for any of their trucks. However, I see guys with them on CTD's. What should I make of this? Is it a frame issue? Overheating issue? Springs?
