    I would get a fisher, at least an 8', the truck could handel anything up to an 8'6" v plow. You are not very limited in your plow selection with that truck. You have soo many choices and it highly depends on how much plowing you do. Since iam not very up to date about dodge trucks does quad cab mean 4 full sized doors? If its a large cab you may want to stay around 8'. Depends on your front axle weight rating. I would put a fisher or curtis on it if it was my truck. BTW sounds like a nice truck.

    the quad cab i have is basically an extended cab and i have a 5200lb front axle. i've been looking at the curtis 8 ft, very impressed with the set up, also looking at the boss 8 ft, both very nice
