    I'm looking into buying a Blizzard LT (Light Truck) snow plow since i purchased a 1/2 pickup this year. I know they are built for this type of truck but how well do they work?

    The plow should work fine for residential, but how will you do it with only 1/2 a truck???? Did you buy the front half or the back half?

    I have been running a Ford F150 with a BOSS 7'-6" poly straight blade for 3 years now without a single problem. I do have better shocks on the truck, that is all I have done to the suspension. I have never done anything else to the suspension, and never had a problem. I personally feel the Ford trucks are better equiped to handle a plow than the GM's but that is just me. The truck plows 100% commercial, so don't be afraid to use it for that.
