    I have need to put a Western Poly Pro plow, which I already have, on 1 of 2 trucks. The truck will be used for residential driveways only. It is either a 96' Dodge short bed with a solid axle Dana 44, or a 96' Ford short bed with the Dana 44 TTB. We are only using this truck for light plowing so being a half ton does not matter. Which would you use?

    Pick whichever truck is in better shape and you think/know will be the most reliable.
