    I am thinking about buying a 1994 Dodge Dakota 4x4 pickup. It has never been plowed with and is in mint conidition. I need some advice about the truck and if it would even make a decent plow truck. I would only be doing driveways and maybe small lots with it. If so, what would be the best plow to put on there? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    before u purcase the truck make sure u can find a mount for your truck i have a 94 ford ranger w/ a 6.5' western it was a hard to find a mount for it every place i went they said it was to old nobody makes a mount any more. do your research and make a smart decision before u buy

    I went on the snoway website and it did not even have an application for the truck. Do you know if there is one? Thanks again for all of your help.

    Snoway MT 7.5 if it's a V8, 6'8" if it's a V6 and a set of wings for parking lots. Put about 600lbs of ballast in the bed, crank the torsion bars and add a set of Timbrens up front.

    Get a fisher 6 1/2'. My dad used to be the manager of a Dodge dealership and he would always bring home the old style (92-96)Dakota's with plows on them. They did a great job and were great for small driveways. It handled the plow without any ballast either. The style he'd usually bring home was an extended cab V8 shortbed.
