    I've had a sno-way on a jeep, it worked O.K. on a small vehicle.
    After the first season there were cracks around the ribbing.
    Just Try to shine your lights through the lexan, too much glare and not enough light, so you'll need the plow light option.
    The reason they need down pressure is that the light lexan blade needs all of the help it can get to dig in and not ride over packed snow.
    There a pita to put on, if the truck and plow are not at the same angle it's nothing but a struggelfest.
    So my $.02 is get a Boss or a blizzard,:eek: I don't believe it my self!! I recommend a buzzard!! Well thay are better than a sno-way.:nod:

    I'm always leery of a company who offerers warranty for that Long , kind of like the 10yr one from Hyundai & KIA why so long? is there a problem with the product?
    The 7.5 sounds to narrow for a 3/4 ton? try to get an 8.? for it.
    Hope you got the plow light option.
    just be careful pushing with the lexan plow. hitting hidden obstacles, ie rocks, pipes, bump stops (concrete parking spot markers,) in your piles as your pushing back the snow banks. The lexan is tough, but it is easer to punch a hole in it, then what? you can't fix it! Hopefully your shop that is open 24/7 has a replacement on the shelf, With a steal one you can patch the hole and weld it. if it ever happens.
    well, hope you have good luck with your new plow:waving:
