    I HAVE A DUMB ? I GOT A GOOD DEAL ON A 1992 FORD F250 UTILITY TRUCK 4X2 I WAS THINKING OF PUTTING A PLOW ON IT AND USING IT AS A BACK UP TRUCK I KNOW ITS NOT 4X4 BUT WITH THE LBS. FROM THE TOOL BOXES THINK IT WILL BE OK OR JUST USE AS A WORK TRUCK... :dizzy:

    I would put a plow on it. Keep it in the 7'5" range. Use plenty of ballast and make sure you have some good tires on back. But I would only use it for a spare. When stuff happens it's great to have a spare. And your customers will like it also. Just don't get stuck in a snowbank. :eek: . Remember it won't be able to push like your 4x4 but will get the job done if used wisely. :waving:
