    I was wondering if a 6.6' fisher conventional plow would fit my 1998 Dodge Dakota?

    Could it fit yes, but not without modifications more than likely substantial mods to the truck mount. Also 6'6" isn't quite wide enough for the Dakota I had a Meyer 6'6" on my 99 and ended up adding Pro Wings for the extra width.

    IMO a 7'6" is the best size, but you'll be pretty much limited to a Snoway or one of the new light duty Blizzards as you'll want to stay under 500lbs on the plow.

    That thread was in regards to a Quad, but the specs generally go for all Daks.

    I'd stay with a 7'6" width and go with a blade that is commercially acceptable. Snoway is the only one that comes to mind with a 26" Blade Height. The Blizzard 7'2" is 23.5" tall. So I'd pick the Snoway, but it is pricier. I'd still look for a used Snoway over a new Blizzard, especially when you compare doing the DownPressure mod on the Blizard will set you over the cost of the new Snoway.

    a 7' Meyers ways as much as the 7'6" Snoway without the Down Pressure. If your taxing the front end that much, why not go with a wider and better plow?
