    Looking to buy a brand new truck and plow.
    We figure we want a 1 or 1.5 ton dually Cab and Chassis,.. as we will have a 9' dump flatbed installed for landscape and dirt and wood hauling , also to put our spreader on. Here are a few things more things we figure we want
    Four wheel drive
    Dually
    Diesel
    V plow
    Maybe Dodge with a 4.44 rear end
    We are in the Oregon Cascade range [West side] and need to keep about 12 miles of road open for our winter guests, this truck will work with our older CalTrans International 4700 plow truck and will have to take the whole load when that truck is down, which happens.
    So if any of you all was to spec out a new truck and plow for your operation what would you do? I would appreciate hearing from you all,
    Thanks Davidc
