    6-feet seems like a pretty short plow for a Land Cruiser. (I believe the stance on that is a little wider than a Toyota Pickup, right?) With a 6' plow angled, you won't be plowing a swath wide enough for the truck. I would think at least 6.5 foot, or better yet a 7 foot.

    Just food for thought.

    I'm not real familiar with them,but I think they are a lot beefier than your typical small truck.It would probably do better with a bigger blade as suggested above.Not sure who all makes a mount for those trucks though.

    A Snoway would be nice.I'd shy away from the plastic homeowner plows like the Fisher Homesteader though.

    You would need a bigger plow then 6ft. i would go with a 7 or 7.5 size plow.:cool:

    i did a little research into using a 62 series for plowing the problem is the springs are too close or with the mm setup it would have to protrude to far in front of the truck and maybe hang down off the front ends of the frame ,overall i think it is not going to be too easy let me know how you make out paul
