    Hello everyone. I am a newbie to this forum. I just recently purchased a Blizzard 760ld for my truck. I just want to know if anyone recommends me to do anything special to my truck to accomidate the plowing. I only plan on plowing my driveway, small parking lot at work, and maybe a couple other driveways for family members.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    put in offroad coils #024 and 025aa.Will make a huge improvement with the plow on.My 97 1500 only drops 1/2 inch with plow up.Also made the ride much better with plow off.You can get them in any mopar dealer and area cinch to install.Make sure to put balast in the truck while plowing.

    I would recomend a trans cooler.
    We all know that Dodge has had trans concerns in the past.
    Just a little cheap insurance,

    using snowway

    i have been plowing with my 98 for about 3 years and love the way it handles and rides. I have a 7 5 snowway on mine and think that it is the way to go i love the down presure and the way the truck handles the snow.

    Up until this year I used a 98 ext cab ram 1500. Plowed great only thing I did was add a set of rancho Mussle LSE to the rear of the truck to handle the weight.
