    I have a dodge ram 1500 with a hemi, 4 doors and 20 inch wheels. I recently put a 7'-6" boss plow on it. Will it work properly without causing damages to the truck.

    You should be okay stock suspension wise. Do add a aux tranny cooler before you start plowing with it and standard tranny cooler in radiator will not cut it.

    How about some pictures? I would love to see pictures of a new 1500 on 20's with a plow.

    make sure you put some ballast in the back of that thing and be CAREFUL with the curbs, those 20" get destroyed easily, no rubber to save you. Take it easy anyway with a 1500, you should be fine with that setup..

    Good point about the weight and especailly about the rims & tires.

    hey man nice truck, i love those rams with the hemi and 20's. i bet it really drinks that gas!!!

    this is maybe an idea.... have you thought about getting some stock 16's or 17's off ebay and putting some bf goodwrich all-terains on em? I dont know if those are good tires or not, but possibly the 700 you spend on a set of rims and tires will save ya from having to buy a new rim. but again, think about getting a spare set for winter.

    16's will not fit, newer body styles need at least 17's to clear the brake calipers, even then some aftermarket 17's won't fit.
