    So I am thinking of down sizing from my 3/4 ton to a half ton I have sitting here at my shop. It is a 2008 Dodge 1500 sxt 5.7 hemi auto 4x4. I really don't do any commercial plowing. I have a few driveways and 2 parking lots that I do since I own the properties. I have a 3 year old (very light use) Arctic 7.5 I was going to mount on the ram. What are your thoughts??

    I plow with a 2010 Ram with a 7.5 Sno Way on it.
    Works great.

    Not the best 1/2 ton for plowing but it will do job( not bashing dodge I own a 3500 and love it) I think the gm's and toyotas 1/2 tons are better .

    Its got 4 wheels and 4wd? Then it should be able to plow.
    The question, however, is which of arctic's 7.5' plows do you have? They've got ones that may be a bit heavy for that truck to carry around competently.
