    HAHA made you click it.

    Just got this little baby on the road today. Its a 1996 4.0 V6 4x4 with 155,000 miles. I got this mint Fisher 6.8' LD out of North Carolina. It was suppost to go on tacoma, but I never bought it. So I put it on my buddies truck. Found a NOS ranger mount and an front air bag kit. Talk about a pain to work one. With everything being so small. Its going to be doing our residential route this year.

    If you had a F450 you could just load that up on the back and save gas to and from lots.

    Those rangers have a great turning radius, good for drives if you have the right amount of ballast

    I may be interested in them.

    No need to make it grow!!!! I've got an 05 just waiting to get out of waranty 'til I research a plow. That's a driveway $$ maker right there.

    Bet that will work out great. Small trucks move snow! It may not be as quick as larger trucks, but it's not meant to be. And as you say, driveways are perfect for this. In fact, my route is mostly residential, and I know a 3500 is overkill most of the time for doing 4-5"

    I'd thought about trading my '01 GMC Jimmy up to a newer Yukon as a second plow truck, but maybe doing a small Fisher on a truck that's far past its warranty would work too. It hasn't had any problems, so besides mileage it could stick around for a while

    Good luck with it!!

    Well its not the airbag that you need plowing, it's the seatbelt!

    I think he means suspension airbags for the front end of the truck!
