    I own a Landscaping business in virginia and am looking for a snow plow for my 2008 Tundra, I added extra leaf springs in the rear and stronger coil springs in the front. I have plowed before in Colorado and am thinking in the winters to go and plow out there.

    I am looking for a decent plow, not a poorly built one but not the top of the line. What do you all recommend?

    I love my western pro plus with wings I run them on my built Tahoes and they are great.

    Dealer support is MORE important then plow brand.
    Figure around $2000 for a decent plow and mount.

    If you want a plow for $2000 or less your going to have to buy a used one.

    I've installed 29 series Snoways on those with great success. The problem is going to be finding one for 2K:D

    i don't think a tundra could plow that much but i recomend a western mid weight so its not so much stress on the truck let me know how it goes.

    It would be quite intersting to see what would happen to a truck driving from VA to CO with a plow hanging off the front all the way, i hope you have a small trailer or a forklift to put it in the bed

    if you want 1 for less than 2 grand you will need a used 1 and then you would want to restore it cuz who knows if there is rust buildup or anything like that
