    You can plow with anything.

    A manufacturers warranty is for defects. Whether the mfr recommends a plow for a specific vehicle or not, if you break something pushing snow Im pretty sure an a$$hole dealer could deny a warranty claim on the grounds it wasnt defective but "abuse".

    The vast majority of dealers are not going to shy away from warranty coverage, since they recieve a higher parts markup and they get the bill paid in full with little trouble.

    Like Bil said,you can plow with it,no the factory does not recommend it,and does not offer a plopw prep for it.The best bet is a lighter plow,like a 9ft western,or a Sno way.The V plows are real heavy,and with that engine you already have a lot of weight up front.You will probably be overweight or real close,on the front axle WR.
