    Check the Dodge forum and also read the plow mfg forums for advice but dealer support and service is more important then brand.

    Bingo! Hydro nailed it. Buy what's popular in your area. Around here it's probably 80% Fisher (They're made in our county), Some Boss and Meyer, a few Blizzard. I've never seen a Western, Curtis, or Snoway. I run Fisher for a couple reasons. Good reputation, built locally, trip edge, and, most importantly, my dealer has been fantastic. All the parts on the shelf, 20 years experience, and full metal fab shop. I would buy from a plow dealer, as opposed to an auto dealer that installs plows. If you've got some options for brand, talk to guys. When you see a truck with push plates, ask them how they like the plow, where they got it, service, etc. Do some reading here and see what comments and problems people are having. Each major brand has it's own forum.

    Any particular reason you're opposed to frame drilling?

    Most of the mounts are designed with as few holes to be drilled as possible. The truck builders do not like us drilling their new light weight high alloy frames.

    But instead of the hole drilling issue you should concerned with finding the dealer that can offer you the service and parts support you might need. Beware of the broker who only has minimal parts and service inventory. Find a dealer that stocks or you'll be watching the snow fall while you are waiting for them to get what you need to continue working.
