    Here we go again.

    Yes, this truck will be fine for a few driveways. Just add some timbrens and crank you t-bars a little and you should be good to go. Also, dont forget your ballast.

    Heres my truck, and if it reassures you any, i have only plowed with regular cab shortbox chevys, and they work excellent for small drives. i just retired my 96 chevy for my 2003 z71 i just put the boss plow on. i also plow 30 residential drives all winter long and have not had a problem.
