    4x2 will not get the job done, your front end will not handle a plow very long...................

    Give it up. You get in deep stuff plowing with a 2x4 truck!
    We get scary with 4x4 sometimes. 2x4 is beyond scary. you would get into too many situations to get out of. Stay on flat nonslick surfaces.

    They should put up a post that states that you can only plow with 2 wheel drive if you have some huge truck and even then you need lots of wheight in the back.

    You could with 600 pounds of sand in the back and tire chains on the rears but that would get old quick removing the chains and reinstalling them.
    You could get away with it if it were only your own driveway but do not leave the plow on while driving around.

    I had once pulled a 4x4 plow truck out of the snowbank UP hill with a E350 thats right an E350 not an F. I had about 600 pounds of sand and chains. I hooked up a pull chain and pulled it right out like it wasn't even there.

    Sell it and get a 4X4 if you really want to plow!
