    Does anyone run a 8.2 or 9.2 Avalache plow on there 1 ton truck?
    We do alot of medium size lots and would think this set up would be almost perfect! The 8.2 holds 2yards and 9.2 around 2.5 yards.

    There's been discussion here on this subject in the past.

    Not a good idea. No built in failure points on the containment plows that will "work" on a truck. This means the failure point is transfered to the weakest area of the vehicle..... usually on the truck, and most likely the frame of the truck. Expensive date.
