    I used to plow with a '96 1500, short bed, regular cab, 5.2, with a leveling kit on it. I used an older style Meyer 7'6" with an E47 pump. I also had a Snowex veepro 3000 in the bed. It worked fine for me. Now your not going to be able to put 2 tons of salt in there but it was better than using a tailgate spreader. Now I use a 2002 1500
