    They are great trucks.Only things I have heard is the front frame isn't the strongest,and can't get bent up if plowed hard.I am actually looking into buying one (or more),if I can get a good deal on them.

    I have been installing plows on the Mitsus for a few years now. I've done FG's, FE's, and FH's. You need to make sure you stick with a make like BOSS or Fisher who make specific kits for these trucks(FG only). The 2 wheel drive models need to have the undercarriages fabricated. We gusset ours back about a foot and heavily reinforce the framework to protect the frame. Installed properly these trucks can push a bunch of snow.

    Hey Lawnpro. Where in Syracuse are you. I wouldn't mind taking a look at your Mitsu. I was thinking about getting one.

    Do you have any pictures of your FG? I have 4 F350 4X4's with plows and a izusu NPR with a Aircub sweeper on it and want to buy a cabover for plowing and sanding. I see you have had good luck with yours. I am trying to gather any information I can about them. I can/t e-mail you without an address. Here is mine if you could find the time twhall@gci.net
