Is this guy missing something?

    I thought I was mistaken the first time I seen it but I seen the guy driving down the road the other day. Dodge Ram 1500 (new body style) with 20's and what appears to be at least an 8' Fisher Plow on it. Front sag was like an inch and half clearance over the tires and man was the negative camber bad.

    Did someone forget to tell this guy something? Anyone here plow this way?

    I sure would like to see a picture of a truck set up like that with a plow on it.
    Man that would be funny!!!

    There are always alot of people that run around with no ballast in their trucks. Either they don't know any better or they think they are too smart for ballast.

    Don't those newer style 1500's come standard from factory with 20's? I sure thought they did.

    Geez, i would not put that size plow on a newer dodge 1500 :eek: , it would not be too much of a problem on the pre 2001 models if you beefed up the front end a little. My plow weighs more then an 8' Fisher and its on a F150, front end does not move.

    I agree, infact, they killed all of their trucks except the dakota. Who the hell is going to buy a dodge now.

    The thing I laughed at was the fact those 20's only have one tire available which is a summer orientated all season.

    Just put on a set of Hankooks and you're set! Mine get great traction year round. But I wouldn't think of leaving them on while plowing. 20's bend much easier than the smaller wheels.

    wouldn't suprise me any! I already see several trucks in my area with 22's pulling trailers. There are a lot of major headquarters in KC so needless to say,when daddy makes money, you see it on their kids ride :cool:
