    Hi All,

    New guy here. I'd like to put a plow on my 99 Tacoma. It is a 4 cylinder, with a 5 speed manual trann and airbags. I am not interested in plowing commercially, but only really a few driveways (friends and family - including mine).

    What is an inexpensive plow set up that will not require major expensive modifications to my truck?

    What should I look for, and stay clear of.

    Thank You

    Welcome to Plowsite.

    Do some searches in the import forum and I would also suggest the Sno-Way forum. We have lots of customers with Toyotas running our plows.

    What would this set-up run?

    I recently bought a 22 series with down pressure installed for $3940 with tax. I did however have a 10% off coupon so you can do the math.

    I was leaning towards the Western Suburbanite and am very glad I paid the extra $800 for the Snoway. When looking at them side by side, the Suburbanite looks like a piece of crap compared to the Snoway.

    I have a Fisher LD 6.8 on my 94 Toyota with Timbrens to help with the weight. The fisher is really heavy but a solid plow. I recently bought a snoway V for my ford and was impressed with its weight reduction over a similar fisher/boss/western V. The down pressure is a cool feature too.

    Keep your eye out for a used snoway in the local papers or on Craigslist. I saw a used snoway 22 for a 95-99 tacoma for $1200. I was very close to adding another toyota to my fleet.:eek:

    I would go with a Boss sport duty or a Western mid weight
