    It's a great truck,should be just fine.

    Make sure it has a set of Timbrens.It will help it carry the plow better.

    I plowed with a 94 for a couple of years. No problems at all. Just do the trans fluid and filter and band adjustment.
    I'd also strongly suggest a trans temp gauge.

    Jump on it, you are gonna love the truck, especially if it is your first Cummins. I just got my first one a couple months ago, and you are going to love the power. Be careful, you might catch the bombing bug... (Cough....Cough) I think I might be starting to come down with something:D :D

    Alex516- When you get the truck, go ahead and check underneath the transmission pan at the two lines that cross underneath. If they are right next to echother or rubbing, put a piece of soft rubber or something in between to keep them from wearing holes in echother(like mine did)-it could be a very bad night if they went.:nod:
