    depends on what your plowing i suppose, parking lots and crap no problem, small driveways, your gonna struggle with the size of the truck, its just a big long truck not to mention the extra few feet added with the plow on.

    With my salter and plow on mine is 33 1/2 feet long.


    Try not to get in to many tight spots if you can avoid it.

    I plow with my 04.5 2500 Quad Cab/Long Bed and it is tough to manuever, but if your careful, you should be fine.
