Hello; I am beginning my research for a snow plow setup for my 2008 Ram 4500 truck. This will basically be for next winter (2011/2012). I need recommendations for what is appropriate for my truck and my applicaton. The truck: 2008 Ram 4500 4X4 diesel 6-speed manual with 11' dump. Usage: Approx 12-15 driveways (1 being 1200' long others in the 90 - 120' range). Eventually moving on to bigger and better with experience down the road. I am looking at at straight blade for the truck since I believe the less moving parts, the less to go wrong. My questions: Would a 9' blade be appropriate or a 10' blade? Would Timbrens be necessary or a nice option on the front? Trip edge or full trip (most driveways I would do are gravel). Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
