    Best thing is to just call your local dealer and have them check the recommended applications and see if you can. May vary from different plow manufacturers too. Actually now that I think about it Western's web site has a Quick match that you can enter your truck info in and it tells you what plow you can run. Other plow brand web sites may have something similar too. Good luck.

    I just ran your truck through the Fisher plow selection site and this is what it gave (I made an assumption on the engine size of a 5.9L):

    2002, DODGE, RAM 1500.

    The vehicle has a 4x4 drive train, Quad Cab body style, 6.3 Box foot box, 5.9L V8 engine type, 3900 minimum FGAWR, 3900 minimum RGAWR, 6650 minimum GVWR, and HB5 headlamp type.

    The blade selected is 7 1/2' LD Series with Minute Mount 2 . The control type selected is Joystick Control.

    The required ballast is 500 lbs.


    The only difference if you have the smaller engine is the ballast - use 250lbs instead of 500.

    How does your truck the 1500 sport hold up to the plow and did you do anything to the truck to beef up the suspension. Let me know what you did, I have the same truck except for an 2002. Thanks ,Chris

    Hey Ridehard, your equipment is just way too pretty, are you afraid to use it:D Just kidding, sweet shop, I'd be cleaning my stuff too if I had a shop like that.

    I have a set of timbrens on my truck and 360lbs of ballast in the back. I think my truck plows as good as any 2500. Just take your time and don’t beat on your equipment and you should be fine. I try to wash my truck as much as possible in the winter. I always have. I don’t want all that crap on my vehicles.
