    I'd go with a 7.5' Fisher LD. It'll work out great for you.

    Dodgeguy99.....This is my first year plowing with a 04' quad cab, with the V8 and I'll tell you we had 28" last Wednesday night and I was at the limit (read Past the limit!!) of the truck with a 7.5' Fisher. Smaller storms were no problem. but a big one like this and you'd better plow fast and often. Good luck....

    Honestly, any truck pushing a foot of snow is gonna feel like it's working. I don't care who it is, 1/2 ton truck or Freightliner, pushing 28" isn't gonna happen all at once without beating your truck. Everyone knows you plow with a storm, and I'm a total advocate of 4-6" at a time. Multiple visits to each account? Absolutely, and multiple charges? Absolutely. Dakotas are larger than Tacomas & can handle the larger plow. I say the same for the Tundra since that came out & has grown in durability.

    Good luck!
