Snow Plow??

I have an 08 Ranger XLT 4x4 SuperCab with the 4.0L V6 SOHC and a 5 Speed Automatic Transmission with the 4.10 Limited Slip Differential and Four Wheel Drive. What kind of lightweight plow can I put on this? Thanks All

I think Boss makes a lightweight one. Might look into Western too. but they are top brands.

Are you aware of the risks and more maintainence required when using a plow?

If your going to do a driveway maybe 2 for a winter I would use a snow blower. If you have plans to work more than that buy a 3/4 ton truck.

The ranger is a good light duty truck but the auto trans is just too crappy for real work.

I use a Snow Sport Plow on a 99 B4000. I have a half mile to plow (downhill) and I don't let it build up very deep before I plow. I also have an auto trans but I have an open diff. As long as your slow and careful and not doing commercial work, you'll be ok.
