    Hey guys, im obviously new to the forum, found it through lawnsite.

    SO my question is, have any of you you guys plowed in a 2wd truck, or just use 2wd when plowing, Im starting to get more snowblowing accounts then i can handle, so i was wondering if a plow would work out on my 04 gmc 1500 2wd. I thought it might be feasible on a relatively flat driveways, but i would appreciate input from you all.

    This has been discussed numerous times on the site.

    P.S. The simple answer is NO!

    The site has a search feature? Are you sure?

    1 ton dually is about the only 2 wheel drive truck I would even think about putting a plow on. And even at that point I would question doing it.

    Yes this site has a search feature. Throw a plow on it and you'll find out.

    easy fix, sell your 2wd and buy a 4x4 from the money you get from it. i plow in 2wd 90% if the time with no problems but that doesnt mean anything. if i have a good push i need 4x4 to keep the trucks ass end in a striaght line. i run 800 pounds of ballast in the back as well. unless like everyone has said a million times before, unless you have drw truck ie 1 ton, then its not possible.
