    Dually 2wd and a lot of ballast in the bed and you'll be good. Carry a set of chains for emergencies and don't tackle too steep of hills. Have fun! We want pics too!

    Personally I would never try to plow with a 2wd, but like has been said with enough wait it should do okay!

    If it's 4x4 then you should be fine. The 454 has plenty of power but gas mileage will be practically none. Be ready to be driving to the gas station on a regular basis.....:)

    That's an excellent truck for plowing. You made a bad choice starting this season, but the chances of next season being as bad are slim to none.

    Oh, and it probably is a K3500, but they never say it on the side of the truck.
