    i have a 1500 ram short bed with a 7.5 hd plow and had to use a sd truck side mount. this is my back up truck but now i use it as my primary, so much easier to turn in a tight driveway or parkinglot. So many people told me i couldnt put a hd plow on a 1500 but i did and i coulndt be more happy to prove them wrong

    Half ton trucks do awesome for plowing most things. I always did a ton of driveways with a half ton & 7.5 Fisher, and my grandfather did the same.

    a halfton is fine for driveways as long as the plow on it is not to big/heavy

    Shhhhh don't say that too loud. 90% of the people on this site will have you believe you cannot put a 7'6" HD on a 1500, but would you believe I actually put one on an 03 Dakota!!!!

    Talk about the ultimate driveway rig, I could turn around in some very small driveways.

    Looks like it was going to fall forward when lifted, I noticed that on alot of MM1s.

    Yeah you can adjust the headgear on them since they stretch the support "straps" after awhile, I didn't realize that until after I sold it off.
