    Do you make a plow that would fit and do ok on a 2WD Nissan Titan? This would get very light use...plowing no more than 4-5 inches at a time and mainly just small driveways. Also I would need down pressure. Please let me know thanks!

    I would not recommend plowing with a 2wd Titan (or anything 2wd, short of a 1 ton dually for that matter). You just simply won't be able to find the traction you'll need. Sure you could put chains on and load your bed to max capacity, but that certainly would not be ideal. Another thing to look at is the mounting point. For most plows it has to be within the 8-12" range from the ground (8"-10" for SnoWay), mine sits at 9" on my 4x4 w/ off road pkg & 2" leveling kit, so unless you bring up your front end, it won't work very well. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the Titan isn't capable, as I absolutely love these trucks and haven't backed down from anything yet with mine, but I wouldn't push with ANY 2wd SRW truck. For the 4-5k that you would spend on a new plow, just pick up a decent used truck thats already set up, especially if your just doing a few driveways. Best of luck.

    What about a used jeep wrangler with a 6'9" plow? It is a 4x4 jeep would that be better than the 1/2 truck? For driveways only. Maybe 10 driveways per storm. Thanks!

    Jeeps with a 22 series SnoWay w/DP are the perfect driveway tool. Small enough to get into very tight places and a very small turning radius. Depending upon the setup of the Jeep, if its a 4 cyl/5 spd, I'd stay with the 6'8", if it's a 6 cyl/auto I'd go with the 7'6". Depending upon your skill level (both driving and plowing) would affect the choice if it's a 6 cyl/5 spd, less experience (= more smoked clutch) stay with the 6'8".

    I totally agree, don't try to plow 2wd unless your in a city dump truck, and i've seen them get stuck in front of my house pushing snow around the corner. the titan is a nice truck i drove one for a month while mine was being fixed.

    if you have the ability to fix stuff then get a plow truck all set-up for cheep. if not just wait till you can buy a 3/4 ton 4wd. i waited and was glad i did.

    a jeep would be great a snoway 22 series with down pressure would be a perfect fit.
    the titan 2wd would not be a good idea at all

    If you really like to shovel hard packed snow and ice, you go ahead and set up that titan. Good luck!
