    This is my first posting on this site, so I am trying to figure out how it works. If this comes out funny..... oops!
    This is my 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4 cyl., manual transmission, pushing a Fisher LD plow. It does a great job! My driveway is about 1000 feet long, a fairly steep hill with a 90 degree turn at the top. I have plowed with an F250, F150 and now the tacoma, and by far the tacoma works the best for my driveway. It turns on a dime and it can really push snow as long as I run it in 4 low and push with the storm. :) Jen

    The 06 is totally different. You won't be able to put a Fisher MM on it unless you want to fab brackets. Only Fisher available for it is the Homesteader.

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, the truck is a great driveway plow, especially because the MM is so easy to put on and remove, and the truck can turn so easily in some of the tightest corners. I have 2 sand buckets in the bed to provide good ballast.

    I don't know how much one of these plows would cost now. I bought the truck used and it came with the plow. It is 6'-9", the light duty (LD) model. I think that Fisher now recommends the Homesteader for the newer Tacomas.

    I learned the hard way that if you truly want the MM plow to be hooked up in a "minute " you have to lower the hydraulics before you remove it from the truck, otherwise, you have to work a lot harder to get pins to lock in.

    I've got the same year reg cab Tacoma with a 2.7, auto. They don't offer the Fisher LD anymore from what I saw. Am I mistaken that only the Homesteader is available now?

    I'm just jealous of your engine. The 2.7L 3RZ puts out as much power as the factory turbocharged version of my 22re.
