    Dodge 1500 w/ plow

    This is my Dodge 1500 w/ 4.7L and a 700 Lb. Boss Just tighten your torsion bars up about 4-5 turns and that does fine for mine, take a look at mine.

    Dodge1500 with plow up

    Heres mine with the plow up, I have had this plow on my Dodge for two years and it does fine, but you would be happy with a sno way like ''BRAAAP'' the sno way is only 500Lbs and you could have down pressure, wireless remote, less weight & the only 5 year warranty

    If you search 2003 Dodge Ram you can see my truck with a Meyer plow.

    I will try to get a picture soon. I cranked up the torsion bars so it doesn't sag that much.

    My Dodge dually is bad to the bone. I have 9'2" Boss PolyV mounted to one hell of a bad-ass custom bumper. This truck makes a mean plow truck. I've yet to find something that stops it. Hell, I've even towed mobile-homes with it (friends in need).

    Seriously, though, Dodges are known for having a bad front end design. Just talk to your local Les Schwab dealer. Ours said they have at least one Dodge a week (usually more) for a total front end rebuild.
    I Heavily recommend Timbrens overloads. They work great on my truck.

    I have a Chev Silverado 1500 with the Blizzard 760LT on it. Been very happy with the plow, no problems at all. 550lbs on the plow I believe.

    Here's a pic of it after adding some Timbrens.

    They are very tough, I love my truck for that, but the front ends are very bad design. I had it aligned once, and they spent hours trying to get it right (it never was).
