    I'm looking for a plow for my Tacoma that has the off road package. Does anyone have recommendations for this. I will be plowing only my narrow 100-200yd drive in Santa Fe. The road is always in shade, so it never melts in the winter. Any help would be appreciated. I'm not doing this for income.

    what year is the toy?

    I have a 6.9' Fisher Minute Mount 1 on my 94. seems to handle it OK with Timbrens, but then again we don't have any snow yet.

    i got all the truck side stuff for a 1995-2004 tacoma. Fisher mount, timberns (brand new) and the two pigtails to plug the head lights into the isolation box.

    Thanks for the responses so far. The minute mount seems ideal but it is in Massachusetts and I'm in New Mexico. I was also interested in knowing if anyone thought there would be a problem using a small truck like mine to plow. Thanks.

    Bruce,

    For price and availability you can contact Clark Truck Equipment in Albuquerque. You can find their phone through our dealer locator on our website http://www.snoway.com .

    Many satisfied customers running our plows on Toyota's.

    Curtis not bad either

    Hi TT1,

    I have an 03 Tacoma 4x4 4 cyl 5 speed. Works nice with a 7' curtis poly plow. Good for my 800' steep driveway anyhow. I think the Fisher LD should be nice too. If you just do your own, you should be OK with the Toy, Timbrens help

    Toyota is a great plow truck when used for driveways and small venues. Here is a pic of my Fisher Minute Mount. 4 years old and 0 problems.

    looks good TP, is that an LD 6' 9"?

    Yup, 6' 9" LD. I have Timbrens on the front and use 6- 4" solid concrete blocks in the rear for ballast. I load my big snowblower in the back with a couple of ramps and I am good to go. My son is my shoveler.

    There are people on this board that would have you think that a rig like this is puny or prone to breakage. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have made a LOT of money with this plow. Fisher makes a great product.

    The key is to take on small jobs. Driveways and gas stations. Convienince store here and there. I work the high rent districts where people are willing to pay well for a good job. I average 60 or 80 bucks a drive.

    I spent the last 18 months or so in and out of Iraq and lost a large number of my clients, so it's back to the bricks over the summer. I have no doubt I will fill my list again for next year.

    Have fun....

    I was looking at the LD too. It would have been what I bought except a used Curtis Poly blade (home pro 3000) with Toyota mount fell in my lap for cheap. Just plowed the first 4" of our expected 12"

    Good luck, that's a nice rig!
