    If you want to overheat your truck, put the plow on the front, and raise it all the way up.

    Put it in the bed.

    I would put it in the back in your truck bed for a trip of that distance. The truck will run cooler and it will ride much better too.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I will repost here. Discussion of lake effect snow is strickly prohibited. It will cause much jealousy and depression among the members who have to rely actual snow storms, instead of"artificial" snow.
