    You can plow on a 1/2 ton truck if it has 4X4. I've seen people do it, but I wouldn't. Spend the extra money and get a Heavy Duty 3/4 or 1 ton truck. These trucks are built for plowing. The plow will put a lot of strain on the 1/2 ton truck...they just aren't made to handle this type of work.

    7 1/2 ft plow would work fine on this. if you plan on doing alot of plowing do yourself a favor and get a 3/4 minimum.

    I have a 2000 Silverado ext. cab and it plows great with the Blizzard 760LT on it, makes for a good combination.
