    Hey there everyone,

    I had a few questions on what some of you would reccommend for a suitable plow for my truck. I looked at some posts and I'm sure I am going to get "flammed" for using this truck for plowing. The truck would be plowing driveways and small commercial lots.

    Location: Boston, Mass.

    It is a:

    2007 Toyota Tundra 4WD Double Cab. 5.7L V8 - At the moment just under 30k miles.

    What I would like to know is a suitable plow package that won't hurt the front end too much. Also the kit that I would need. I tried using the e-match feature but it never listed a suitable plow.

    Also, I figured on changing the transmission about 1-2 a month durring the winter. But, I am very new to the plowing scene and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance folks.

    No flamming on this site......

    Based on my reading here, I would be looking for a Snoway. Lightweight, durable, down pressure.

    I have seen those trucks locally with the "regular" Fisher MM push plates. Which would lead me to believe you could get an HT, or SD. I would personally go with the HT if you go Fisher.

    Happy to see new members. No one should give you to much hard time for having a toyota. As long as there isn't a big number 18 on the door. Call your dealer or a few plow dealers. they will have a spec for your truck. I wouldn't exceed what they say, as your warranty could be gone.

    Well, the wife won't agree to let me take back my truck. So right now I am free to buy whatever I can get my hands on.

    Thanks for the help and advice guys, I appreciate it, but I didn't win this fight.

    Right now I am getting my heart set on buying a:

    (2005) GMC 2500 HD. V8 6.0L (crew cab) Sierra

    I am going to make a new post reguarding this. Again, thanks for the help everyone.
