MegaCab Plowing

    OK - I have a Ram 2500 MegaCab that has a Western Ultramount Pro 7'6" on it. I have heard and now read that there are people having major problems with these - windows breaking and doors creasing from the frames bending. I have searched on this site and a few others and all I have found is that it can be an issue. My Dodge or Western dealers know nothing of this situation. Could someone please fill me in here - aka what are these ones that are having problems running for plows and what is causing this - just normal use - or hitting something? Any info would be appreciated - as I could do without ruining a truck with a pricetag like this. I would prefer first hand knowledge of the situation – not just hearsay. Thanks!

    There are a couple mega cabs with plows on here and I have yet to see any one of them having this problem. I don't think Dodge recommends putting a plow on a mega cab though. My truck is a quad cab, but I prefer regular cabs for plowing.

    I did hear rumor of that but no concrete information. I wouldn't want to plow with a truck that big anyway!
    Have you asked Dodge about it?

    Those morons would be the last to know. And even if they did, they wouldn't admit it. Probably void your warranty for asking about it too.

    Thanks for the replies - I have had the plow on it and haven't had problems yet - just a little concerned. It is a long truck to plow with but I plow large lots.

    No Problem

    Enjoy your truck and plow away!ussmileyflag
