    Welcome to PS! The SnoWay would probably be better for you as long as you go with the down pressure (absolutely priceless for backdragging with a light plow). They are both good units so do some local research to find out about dealer support (both parts and service wise), I would not buy the best plow in the world if there wasn't a competent dealer in the area. As for size of the blade, I would try to go with the bigger one. Talk to your local dealers, see if after they set you up with the truck-side, if you could "try on" both sizes and run them around the block to see what you and your truck are more comfortable with. Overall, your truck should handle the 7.5 SnoWay quite well though, I don't have any first hand experience with the Boss unit. Best of luck.

    Piercelawns is the guy you want to talk to, He's been pushing a Snoway with a Ranger for years. He's very happy with it. Search the site under snoway and ranger, his posts will pop up then follow the link to his profile and shoot him an PM .

    Can't go wrong in either case, both are good plows for your rig. Dealer support in this case should be the biggest part of your decision IMO. Welcome to PS :waving:

    Toby is exactly right.
    Dealer support and service is FAR more important then brand.
    Too bad all "newbies" don't recognize this........

    Agreed and it's not just "newbies":nono: many "experienced" people let their brand blinders limit their choices.

    The Boss dealer I talked to when I was looking for a plow on my '94 S10 Blazer said that most of Boss's plows would be hell on the front end, they're just too heavy. Even their "lightweights".

    I would go with the Sno-Way 22 in 7'6". That's what I'm looking at for my Blazer. You can get the Down Pressure (which is priceless, it is incredibly useful) and even a wireless controller for about an extra $100. I was quoted $4,800 after tax and all that to install a new 22 with DP and a wireless controller.
