    I wanna get a new truck and put a plow on it. The truck im interested in has a 10in lift and 33in tires. Would this be a good truck? or is it sitting to High? This will be my first season plowing. Please help thank you

    Not a good choice for a plow truck.

    For commercial use you'd be mulch better off with a truck nearer to stock height. 10" of lift on a plow equipped 1500 is a recipe for problems.

    I knew you would succumb to so mulch peer pressure. Also, I bolded for you. Italics are completely innapropriate.

    Do you have any pics of the truck Kingx49?

    10in of lift on 33's haha i think you might need bigger tires just to fill out the gap between tires and truck

    I thought this was the pictures forum. I know I'll regret this (said that before!) but let's see some pics of something to make this worthwhile!

    Thank you

    Thank you everyone, I think im going to say no to this truck, the last thing I want is a bunch of problems in my first year. Im going to look for a 2500 stock height.
