    There is a little baby straight blade 6' or so MEYER plow for sale (CHEAP)

    I have 3 Chevy's, 1of them is only a k1500 and this little plow would do OK on the truck. The Plow comes with the set up for a dodge Dakota, how difficult would it be for me to get it to work on a 98 k1500 (silverado) with MINIMAL money. Anything possible can and will be done to save cash. Appreciate the input (in advanced)

    I'm not sure, I think it might be bigger than 6'. I've never plowed before, this will be my first year. I bought a 98 3/4 ton with a v-plow that I'm having trouble with, and I'm looking to get a back up plow truck in case their is an issue with that one. I'm just looking to clear the snow at the end of the driveway after the City plow goes by, there are about 100+ people that pay 10$ for this service alone. Let me know the size requirements and I'll go measure it? thanks.

    You would need at minimum a 7'6 plow to stay in its plow tracks. That 6'6" just ain't big enough
    Try and fix the V plow first

    That plow is meant for Bronco II and S10 Blazers and compact pickups. Small SUV's / trucks for tight spots and limited BIG DOG plowing. They are great for Condo's and driveways. You only have 3 foot sweet spot with them plowing. It would take more time then it's worth. The trip springs are twice the price of regular springs. They eat them on a regular basis.

    In order to have a backup plow that will fit on the truck incase the main plows goes down you need to have the same plows. It would cost way to much to change a mount and wiring from 1 manufacture to work on another.

    Take the V plow in while the weather is good and have them diagnose the problem.
