    My buddy has those tires on his truck and says they are really bad in the snow, not much traction, I can't imagine plowing with them. He did mention with the wheel drive engaged it helps but not much.

    Wow what luck. All that money your making plowing looks like it's going right back in to your truck.

    Looks like it may be time for one heck of a rear bumper to save your bed, something along the lines of a ranch hand.

    OH MAN...that poor truck. 5000 dollars!!:dizzy: You should check around at dealerships and truck upfitter places, you could get a new bed for much less than that.:eek:

    ps...im pretty sure all ram short beds are the same no matter if its 1500 or 3500, but you may want to check it out if you go that route.

I just got to confedent in my plowing skills & bad thing is that I have plowed this lot over 20 times this season, why this time:cry:
