    you'll pass atleast 3 dodges on the side of the road with burnt trannys during a 10" event .

    ballast is the answer wesport

    You will push more snow if you go back to your stock all terrain tire for the winter . The 30.5 aren't too good in the snow for traction.

    I plow with an 05' f-250, v-10 power, 8' board, 4" lift / 35" toyo open country's, with no problem and i have had a full board, may depend sometimes on if it's powder or real wet, as well as ground temp and if your on blacktop or dirt road. everything plays a factor. for example the last storm here i pushed a full board of the heaviest wettest stuff, and didn't spin much, but the ground temp was so warm that i cleaned it right to the blacktop and had full contact with the surface. Another funny factor is how many broken down dodge drivers you picked up along the way... lmao
