    To everyone that told me a 2005 f250 2wd isnt worth the 9 grand to buy for plowing. I found a 2000 ram 2500 today with a 8" fisher minute mount 2 plow with only 1 season of use on it. Has a little bit hight mileage 120k but my mechanic said no leaks tranny shifts great looks good for 5500. The exact price i was looking to find a beater truck and plow so i think i lucked out. I will let you know how the trucks works hopefully the northeast (connecticut) will see some snow soon.

    Good luck with it... You might want to look into charging by the hour with an 8" plow.

    well that's a nice truck, now that you've upgraded to the full 8' over that 8" plow... So have you tried it out yet?
