    If you are doing commerial plowing....You really need to be in a 2500, also what gears does that 1500 have, I would have atleast 3:73 if not 4:10's

    Great looking truck thats for sure...I had a 99 Ext.cab and just traded it in today on a new truck.Mine was o.k. for plowing for a 1/2 ton but when you get in the wet heavy stuff a 3/4 or 1 ton is better.But it is a great looking truck that will probably do the job for you.

    if your only going to be plowing a few drives, and not for the county or be doing any high volume w/the plow, then a 1500 is great... its better mpg... but its wise to plan ahead....

    but i think u got a good idea, if things do get going (which i hope they do for you) then just buy an bigger older model truck destinated for plowing....
