    Erich on L&L has a plow on one of his NPR's...with pics to boot! He says they plow well on flat services, you'll need weight in back,like anything, you'll have to use your judgement on steep grades.

    I have a Mitsu, FE HD, short w/b, 10' platform dump, 2 wheel drive, locking rear, Meyer 8' Poly and a Down East 1.5 yard SS sander. Its not good on plowing steep driveways up hill but I can plow down and back out OK.

    I had a 1998 Isuzu NPR HD with the 5.7 gas(I know, I should have gone diesel), 10' stake body, with hoist, 8' Meyer poly plow, 10' Swenson stainless steel salter.

    Bottom line is that the truck was a fantastic salt truck, but was terrible for plowing. Not to mention we went through 2 rear ends on the truck by 10,000 miles! One rear end was covered under warranty one I picked up - $4,000! Isuzu said the plow truck they sold me was seeing "excessive wheel slip". I guess not common with snow plowing????????? Come on!!!

    Nevertheless, try to go with a 4x4 cab over(Mitsubishi) if you want the capability of plowing.
