    Hello,
    I picked up a 97 4x4 f-150 this year. I am looking to get a plow to do a couple driveways a storm. I am not looking to do it commercial, just a few residential houses for family members. I looked around alot of the plow websites but cannot figure out exactly what I need. Could anybody recommend a "all in 1" plow package for my truck. Im looking to buy something and install it. I was trying to avoid piecing the whole package together myself so I dont get incompatible parts.
    Thanks

    Go with a Fisher LD. New England is Fisher country, and you will not be disappointed with them. The F150 will take it nicely. In fact, it will take a Fisher RD which is heavier, but for what you're looking to do, the LD will be a great plow for you. Good luck!

    I have a 2004 Ford F-150 with a 7.6 western mid weight. The truck handles the plow great.

    a 7' 6" 26 series Snoway is a great match.
    Self install you could get in to one with all the bells and whistles Poly, Down Pressure, wireless controls, and probably a deflector for under 4K. 2 year hydraulic ands 5 year black iron warranty.
    Follow the Snoway link on the top of the page.
