    My truck is a little old for some of you it is a dodge MA 880 with a western plow. the truck is solid but does anyone have advice or know if there is anything I can add to the steering wheel to help with turning. This truck has manual steering, manual brakes and a 4 spd stick. I guess what I am looking for is a steering nob like you might see on a tractor. What is nice is at least my plow is is a power angle well after a little work.it is (custom built I retrofitted and old school manual angle plow. over sized rams works great pushes the world out of gravel)

    I just was wandering if anyone had any ideas on making turning easier.

    Most tractor supply stores sell them.
