    it will do well with the right tires and a little weight in the back. What engine, and what part of NH?

    I have a 95 250 heavy 3/4 ton and it pulls a 5000lbs trailer like nothing so i figure it will be a beast with the fisher hd thats on it.

    I have a '99, it will plow very well with good SNOW tires (not mud or all season). Use at least 500lbs. of ballast behind the rear wheels. Because it doesn't have the weight of a Super Duty, good tires and ballast are a must. I have plowed over 30" of powder and 12" of heavy wet snow with my setup on some difficult sloped driveways. Don't let anyone tell you that a 1/2 ton truck can't plow! Go for it!

    You'll have no problems plowing with the 5.4, it's a reliable motor. I got my german shepherd in Tilton near the northfield line, and my dad had a good friend up there who had his own saw mill for years. It's beautiful up that way!
