    I emailed boss about a month ago about a plow for an S-10/ ranger sized truck and got a response that there is one that just came out this season. I was wondering if anyone had seen or heard anything about this. Also if anyone has info on plow sizes, what model trucks they fit I'd be interestedto know.

    thanks in advance

    i'd also be interested in anyone's feedback on the boss sport duty plow. i have an '01 cherokee limited that i want to use for couple of driveways (all personal use). also, more specifically to the cherokee, is there anything else that i should add to it to accomodate this type of plow? it's got the tow package. any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    btw, i'm in west newbury, ma so any tips on local dealers would be mucho appreciated.

    thanks,
    -eric

    I have one on a 05, ford explorer limited. We built the mount ourself(we are a boss dealar). Plow is 7' wide and is a poly blade. It has cross bracing just like its big brothers. Smarthitch 2 with the boss llights. Will fit ranger, tundra and a few others. Great plow and is only 2700 cash and carry.

    Are you referring to the Fisher Homesteader or Western Suburbanite? I have a Homesteader on a 2000 S-10; it was on there when I bought the truck used - (although the plow looked unused). So far so good, it's plowed everything that fell since early Janurary, only use it for my own driveway, with only one small still unresolved problem -- (see my post from yesterday on anlging).
    I have the wider 7'-4" model. I think there's also a 6'-8" model.
    Good Luck.

    echovalley, that's good to know. if you don't mind me asking, about how much did that run you, including the beefed up springs and the radiator? how well has this setup worked for you? i'm only doing a couple of driveways for myself and my in-laws so i can't really justify a pickup.

    i emailed with the folks at boss and they aren't even looking at the cherokee for their sport-duty line. it's too bad. the blizzard is my other likely alternative.

    thx,
    -eric

    The plow was $3200 +tax installed and the springs and radiator were about $300

    Why doesn't boss advertise it yet? It not on their website.
