    I'm selling my plow (05 ram 2500 hemi) & the guy that wants to buy it has a 05 ram 2500 Diesel. The western site doesn't list that plow for his truck. Anyone know if it will fit? Is it a weight issue, or clearance issue?

    Its a weight issue due to the Diesel, and the only reason Western wouldn't show it as a "fit". It'd be over on the FAWR.

    Thanks.

    I spoke with a local Western Dealer & they explained that with a quad cab they have to assume that you have 6 adults as passengers, so that throws the numbers off? I checked the brackets & they fit. It's just a weight issue then.

    I use a 8.5' pro on my quad cab 05 Dodge diesel. I also put the Timbrens kit on the front and have a Western 1000 tail gate spreader and usually have the back loaded with a skid of salt...

    i have a western wide-out on order and all im doing is putting a steering brace on the front from b-d performance and a set of airbags. yeah western said the only plow that i could get is a mid-weight and i dont think it would do to well when i discover a curb
