    I dont know much about curtis plows but I had a 9'2" boss V on my 01 Dodge Ram Quad cab. The truck had ploow prep but carried the plow (about 980lb) fine. the curtis should be ok as far as weight goes but if you are concerned do a search and you will see some have replace the springs in thier Rams.....

    Also do a search for curtis plows as it was discussed in the past week or so.

    Jeremy, I love those Quad cabs but was concerned about putting a plow on one. After sitting out this one because my truck let me down I am considering looking at new trucks. I really want an F250 but those new Dodges are great looking!

    BEUTIFUL!!! I don't like extended cabs but the 4 doors look cool! I never needed more than a regular cab because I only have 1 kid. I'm going to look around. What engines does Dodge use now?
