    You may have a hard time putting that on your truck. The push plate's for the Dakota are meant for the larger plows and will be too wide for that plow. Unless they are making new push plates, but I'm not sure.

    I had an 03 Dakota and used a 7'6" Fisher MM1.

    Thanks Man, I actually miss my dakota a lot. It was my favorite truck when it was lifted, but I had to remove it all when I started plowing with it.

    The only things it's missing is a stop sign and flashing red lights. :laughing:

    Sorry....I had too. Looks good. That truck will push a 6.6 blade just fine, since most use at least a 7'.
