    guys make it easy on yourself ,even though i found a mint 6,8 mm plow for my toyota and by the way the 6,8 is made especially for the tacoma but can only be put on by a fisher dealer if it is a reg. cab 4cylinder and stick mines is everything above but an xtra cab the truck handles it real nice i was in 5th gear coming down 93 south last week and the temp gauge does not budge past normal what you should know is that even if you find a small plow if it wasnt originally set up for a toyota you will have to buy new lights and wire harness that cost me abuot 400$ on top of the 1400$ for the plow and 300$also for the truck mount bracket the whole setup with installation was about 2400$which o0nly saved me 1000$ than if i ordered new one plus the fact that they are not too easy to come by ,i know of a few people that look in the want ads every week looking to pick one up they are not as commom as the 7 footers and up,if i had to do it again i would spend the 2800$ and buy a new one paul

    This is a fisher 6.5 HS series I ended up installing it myself. Lights were the biggest issue.

    thanks for the advice Paul, if time is money, it really does seem like you can spend a lot of it trying to make it all work. Might be worth just plunkin down the cash, eh?

    Truck looks great, how did the plow handle these last few storms?

    The truck handled the snow with no problems at all. I put 300 lbs of sand in the bed of the truck. I was able to plow right along side the big boys with no problems. I would suggest if plan on plowing parking lots you install a snow deflector. I have some big lots I plow with this little truck. I have attached the photo from last storm.
