    Every plow has its place just keep the foot out of the gas or you will bend some things. Looks good

    I had a Snow Bear plow on my 96' F-350 CC LB PSD and it kicked ass! I bought it from my boss at the time he used it two or three time and then bought a Western because hw was too lazy to get out of the truck to angle it. IT was the best $100 I have ever spent. I only used it to do my drive and my dad's, but like said go easy on it and it will last.

    You'll never see me bashing Snowbear! I love mine.
    Nice rig, too! you could almost put the 7'4" model on that truck and handle it no problem.

    Nice set up. I like the Dakota. If I didn't go with red, that blue would be next on the list. You need bigger plow lights! They look too small to me. Where did the factory fog lights go?

    yah the new dodge ram's have the same intense blue .. but just a tad bit darker ... actually i was checkin out the price of some universal plow lights .. kinda like western for $75 a set .. i was thinking about a boss poly sport next year .. but worried about the weight on the front suspension ...

    Nice looking truck! Now when you say you plow residential drives, do you do a lot of back-dragging? I was thinking about getting a snowbear for my Jeep. I would be doing probably 10 driveways.

    yah a i made a special bracket that bolt onto each side of the plow and i took a strip of 1/2 steel by 3 inch high .. and bolted it to the back side .. so when you go backwards .. it grips into the snow .. and presto works like a charm ..

    Hows the Snow bear working out on your Dakota? I have the same truck, and am thinking of a snow bear. Would you recomend it?
