    Unfortunately something small because of your big cab and light duty frame.

    Try to find the lightest 7' 6" plow in a straightblade you can. poly moldboard maybe.

    I stopped thinking. You know what you could do? You could put an Ebling rear plow on it that was like 12 feet wide with the wings opened and move a large amount of snow with the rear of your truck. This would also give you some valuable ballast weight to off set your 7.5 front stacker plow.

    A 12 foot Ebling is around 800 pounds or so, in the back where your truck can handle more weight in the hitch area.

    I ain't so dumb. Well, most of the time.:confused:

    You can put pretty much any manufacturer's 7-1/5 foot plow on that rig
