    man, I've been on the fence..

    I have a quad cab 3/4 ton Chevy...
    I have a extended cab 99 GMC 1/2 ton...

    Now, I will predominately working by myself, and want to mainly do driveways, so the the 1/2 ton would be better
    but My own driveway gets drifts bumper deep or more, so a V on the 3/4 ton would be better....I dunno!

    chevy I would put a 2 inch leveling kit in it truck will look better even if you don't put a plow on it.As far as a plow I would go with a fisher mm2 SD nice plow well built and perfect for a 1/2 ton.
