    The truck....2002 Ford F250 7.3 diesel,crewcab,short bed,single rear wheel,auto,3.73 gears. Truck has a 4inch lift w/35inch tires.

    The job....Used only for my business. Has a real steep driveway about 20ft wide by 400ft long. The lot has three sections with a few tight areas. Section one and two are 250ft x 75ft and the third section is 400ft x 400 with tight spots and a few tricky areas.

    I have been doing this for the past 10 years with a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler with a 5speed trans.with a Blizzard 680 plow.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I've been real happy with my Fisher. Think I would get the Extreme V for my next truck.

    The brand doesn't matter. Look at it all the options very closely and figure out which one matches these characteristics best; SIMPLE, SOLID.
    Do not go for fancy. Do not go for pimped out. The more "features", the more features there are to break.

    Think along the lines of bulldozers and battering rams.
