    I just got me a cheap beater plow truck....86 F150 came with a curtis sno-pro 3000 blade on a sno-pro2000 mount. So far I have not any problems with it. I know it's not a heavy duty truck. Is there anyting I can do to make it last for maybe 2 years.. I have a 06 nissan titan with big balls on it......and dont want to use it...any suggestion would be helpful!!!! thanks

    I've got a Dodge 1500 with a 7'7" Snow-way on it. I had Timbrens put on because from what I've read they are a necessity. I had them put on the back too and now with my landscaping trailer the back end doesn't bounce nearly as much.

    Initially, the installer forgot to tighten up the torsion bars. When I had that done, the front end didn't sag nearly as much. Adding 400-500 lbs in the back behind the wheels made a big difference as well. It rides pretty tight now.

    If your truck already is set up with a plow, I would try it out as is, throw some weight in the back and see if you can get away without the Timbrens. Good luck!
