    Hello everyone, haven't been in here in a while.....hope everyone is doing well....I just picked up a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab 4X4 and want to know what plow would work best without beating it up bad....I only have a small driveway and a neighbor or twos to do. I am not crazy about the poly plows, but any suggestions would be helpful.

    I am certain I will have to add some sort of spring or suspension booster as it only has coils over struts and I am sure it's gonna need some help. Anyone?

    Snowdogg MD 75 or 80. One of the best half-ton plows on the market. Kind of quirky, but once you get the hang of it most people say they're the best for this application.

    I run a fisher 7 1/2' hd on mine. Works just fine. Technically its too much for my truck but it doesn't seem to wear the front end too bad and the truck doesn't sag more than an inch or two.

    Will do....gonna repaint the plow and headgear, and get the mounts on (expected tomorrow) and a few truck-side parts then pics for sure....gonna seem strange, haven't plowed with a half-ton truck since my '85 GMC K-1500.....a whole different truck and a whole lot sturdier.....always had 3/4 tons, but couldn't turn down the deal on this one....

    i plow with a ram 250 and am actually thinking of picking up a Dakota or 1/2 ton if the price is right, much easier in the driveways...i only have 7 drives. But i agree with the guys above...I am a big fan of the SnowDogg plow...almost got one. Great bang for your buck! And deff look into some suspension aids. either timbrens or check our Carli Suspension or Kore suspension for lifts/shocks
