    First post on this forum and really like the site. What plow would everyone recommend for my 1998 Dodge 3500 4x4 Diesel. I do 4 of our family's owned lots. It's not a whole lot of plowing-- takes me about 2 hours for a 4" snow with the 91 Dodge and 7'6 plow. That plow is a completely old school Western and works great but thinking of buying one for the dually. The truck gets used for a lot of towing and farm hauling and driving through hay fields, etc so I would like ease of hooking up and ground clearance. I just want a typical straight blade 8'6 or so. How will the truck do holding the weight up with the cummins?

    For ground clearance i would say western ultra mount. But it really depends on the dealer support in your area. I wouldn't go any smaller then 8'6", your truck will handle it or any larger plow just fine.

    I have a 8'2" boss vee on my 3/4 cummins, it handles that just fine. The front may drop about an inch or less, and thats a factory front end, no beef ups or what not.wesport
