    I currently run a 1995 Chevy 2500 with a boss rt2 v plow. I want to make the move to Dodge but am having trouble sourcing a 2500 in my price range. I am looking at a late 90s early 00s. I currently plow my own drive which is 300 feet and I do a small parking lot for a local garage. What do you guys think could a 1500 handle the 8'2" v-plow?

    If its a solid axle 1500, you can swap in 3/4 or 1 ton diesel springs.

    I have a 99 1/2 ton and put 3/4 front springs on it and it made a world of a difference.

    Yes he is.

    It would probably be a bit much for stock coils bit I would do it with 3/4ton or similar coils. Obviously things sill wear faster but it would be OK.
