    Is there a site where I can find out all plows that are compatible with my 2001 dodge ram 1500 extended cab 5.9 engine?

    I have 2-30ft drives and 1-100yard lane I need to clear. Does anyone recommend a plow?

    Is there any plows out there I would be able to install on my own?

    any 7'-6" straight blade would work great.and any of the plows are not very hard to install yourself

    I looked into Western and Boss before deciding on the boss. Both dealers suggested 7ft 6in standard duty plows

    How do you like that boss are your '02 Ram? Have you had any problems with running hot with the plow on? FeelLikeANumber

    If you enjoy getting out of the truck to pivot the blade you'd like the SnowBear.

    You have a full size truck, and at that one with a beam axel in the front. It will hold the weight of a full funcion plow; no-problemo.

    In order:

    1) Snoway 8' 29 Series with DP
    2) Blizzard 8000LT

    The rest is overweight and not worth the money. Alot of Meyers/Western/Boss/Fisher stuff is nicely built, but weight is high and with newer technologies in alloys and poly, the Blizzard is the best option if your stock on a Diamond product.

    Snoway has the Down Pressure which makes it super valuable where ice or hard snow can be an issue.
