    Is it possible to plow with this truck?

    Salt spreader on the back?

    Chains?

    Can it be done?

    Sure, load the back with some salt, shouldn't be too big of a deal, a lot plow with similar set ups.

    what kind of plowing you looking to do? parking lots?? driveways? i almost never put my dump truck in 4wd while plowing lots, if your doing drives that are steep it can be a problem. just keep the weight on it.

    This truck would be used for parking lots, actually just 1 parking lot.

    The salt spreader would not be a tailgate spreader, it would be a larger in the bed spreader.

    A pick-up would be used for driveways.

    Any other input guys......

    Run real good rubber, ample weight and plow smart, it will plow fine.
