    Hey fellas bought an 04 2500 ram gasser a few weeks ago. An old high school buddy hooked me up with the guy he plows for. I'm wondering what size blade and brand you guys are running on these 3/4 ton trucks? Thanks in advice for any help!

    p.s. new to the site.

    8.5 V Plow

    8.5 Fisher V Plow. I wish I had gone stainless because maintenance will eat up the cost difference. I think the extra half foot in v position gives good spacing for the truck opening up a lot.

    I run a 8' Western on 2500 hemi... wouldn't go any less....... 8'5'' would be perfect IMO (or a wideout)

    It is big and heavy yes but as far as cost goes the productivity far outweighs the cost difference but i guess it just depends on what all you need it for.

    hey wideout ive looked at those plows i think theyre awesome but theyre wait scares me alot. how has your dodge front end help up to that with the diesel also? wheel bearings and ball joints? did you upgrade the springs?
