    I own a 2004 Chevy Colorado Z71 4x4 Extended Cab with the 5 cylinder engine.

    I will only be blading my drive way and live on an acreage.

    What is a good setup?

    What will it cost me?

    Other suggestions than getting a blade for the truck?

    You could also look into the sno-way plows. A member on here (toby4492 I think) is a rep for sno-way.

    Welcome to Plowsite yandy.

    Thanks Mark, you beat me by one minute. Just checked the Boss site and they do not recommend any model for this configuration. They say that all models will exceed the front GAWR.

    The Sno-Way 22 series will fit this application. You can learn more by visiting our factory website, http://www.snoway.com .

    Boss does have a plow that will go on your truck. There is like 4 guys in my area that run them without any problems. I think one guy even has the 7'6'' sport plow. The snow way would work out a little better tho, because the boss snow plow is so lite @ only I think 350pounds or close to it. The snow way you'll be able to get down pressure.

    I would do the sno-with down pressure. I have seen 2 colorados with small blizzards on them in my area lately.
