    What would be a good model for small driveways? We want a V plow, and were told that a heavy duty f150 may be good, but the guy wasn't sure if it could support the plow. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    A V -Plow would be way too heavy for a 150. You need at-least a 3/4 ton and a 1 ton is better for a V plow. Do a search here for What plow to Buy there should be days of reading involved about this subject. It's been beat to death many times every year.

    If you're doing small driveawys, a V-plow is total overkill. If I was you I'd get a Jeep wrangler with a 6.5ft plow, can't beat it for small drives....

    i'd second small drives get something small. as for the heavy 150 it is like a light duty 250. i had an 01 f150 7700 series. it is just a light duty 250 with a solid front axle which i prefer.
