    Hey y'all been lurking around on this site for a while and i got a few questions.

    I have a 2003 Nissan frontier for those of you who may be unfamiliar with this vehicle its 4x4 with a 3.3l v6 and i have the 5 speed manual. Just wondering how everyone thought it would do with a small blade like a snow way or a blizzard 720. I will be doing mostly driveways and a few small parking lots for my father in law (he owns apartment buildings) Also can some one suggest tires for me how about the bfg at k/o ir the Good year MTR.

    should do great for the driveways, my brother has a little reg cab dakota with the blizzard on it, and its awesome for drives, as for the lots its prolly gonna suck, blades too small and trucks too light to push any real snow, when my brother tried to plow a bit at the commercial lots i do he couldn't use any more then half the plow, because it would just spill off the other side.

    also you will need a good bit of weight in the bed to try and help offset the weight of the plow. got any pics of the truck???

    I've dealt with small trucks (Toyota, S10) and you must remember the blade isn't as big as something a full size truck has, so it won't be pushing as much and so the blade fits the truck's size of the vehicle more.

    I don't know too many horribly big apartment building parking lots and the guy did say he had a few 'small' lots...
