    ok so heres the deal i have a 2500hd gmc 6.0 gas that i just bought. my question is that i want to get into plowing streets along with drive ways. however i really dont want to use my new truck i would rather buy a used 1ton dump and put a big sander in. my question is what truck would be my best opition and what type of plow is best for streets. I also do landscaping and lawncare so a 1ton dump would be used alot. what do you guys think?

    The big three make good 1 ton duallys, do some research on some of the threads, it will be helpful to make up your mind.

    There should be some used dumps come spring time. Buy one then.
