    I say blizzard 720LT and a few shovels. Since the trucks is going to give out with that many. But then again, that might be a bunch of little driveways.

    Hope you have air bags, tranny coolers, and a tow strap. LOL. I do believe Meyer makes a mount. 6.5, good luck.

    I would skip the Meyer. Go with the Blizzard 720. The truck will do fine, dont listen to the people who tell you it absoultely will give out, how do they know? As long as you set the truck up right and go easy on the truck while plowing you will be all set. We used to have a guy on this site (Alan) who plowed with S-10s equipped with 8' Snoways, he lives in Northern Vermont, it does not get much harder plowing then that. Do a search, some of his pictures are on this site and alot of the work he has done with his little S-10s. All it takes is a responsible operator, you have to take care of the truck but it will not have any trouble plowing.
