    Well I'm new to the pllowing scene. So you guys have any info for me? I'm looking to plow small residential driveways. I just bought a 94 Toyota with a 2002 Fisher minute mount plow 6.5ft. I paid $4,000.00 for it. Not a bad deal huh:cool: Is there anything I can add to the front suspension to stiffen it up a bit, that's fairly inexpensive?

    Well here's a pic with out the plow on. I'll have some more pics this winter.:cool:

    Well I just found a post about Timbrins...what are they exactly? All they look like is a taller bump stop?:confused:

    ****EDIT****

    Well I just found this site www.timbren.com

    So I now know what they do exacty. Is there another brand or another type of product like this?

    A Timbren is an Aeon rubber spring,to help the suspension deal with the extra load of a snowplow.Do a search on Timbrens,lots to read.

    Is that a light duty plow for the Toyota, or the standard duty? Do you know the plow model # and/or how much it weighs?

    Radguy-
    Those are some nice bikes there in the tacoma. Looks like a suzuki 2 stroke? I have a honda 230. How far are you from Newburg NY, or Westchester County?
    I'm just over the border from Port Chester, NY in CT and am always lookin for a new place to ride.

    Nice Radguy! 4000 G for the truck, not bad. I put a set of Timbrens on my Silverado and found there well worth the money. Ordered them from www.truckspring.com

    KTM owner myself.

    More snow please......

    Great board.

    never mind the throttle... better check that rear tire... looks like it needs about 30 lbs put in it

    Thanks guys:D

    I run a low air pressure to help keep the side to side wobble to a minimum...I can roll a wheelie to a stop so it has a tendency to fall to the side.

    Wait until you see it on the ice:bluebounc :eek:

    You can check out our site at www.rollinrednecks.com for more cool stuff on bikes:dizzy:

    My son raced a pw50 last year and finished 4th in his class....he'll be running a ktm pro 50cc this spring....those are some awesome bikes!!!
