    Hey Boss! Why don't you list a mount for a Ram 1500 with the off road package? The suspension should be heavier on the off road truck which would make it more suitable for a blade, don't you think?:confused:

    In most cases an off road suspension is much softer to improve the ride over rough terrain. But a softer suspension is not a good thing for the weight of a plow. It causes the front end to dip and this might decrease the maneuverability of the truck with the plow mounted on it.
    Just not safe.

    I heard it was a ball joint issue with the newer 1/2 ton Dodges??
