    Here is a pic of my 2009 quad cab Taco with Sno-Way plow after the New Year's Eve snow storm. We got about 6 inches of snow. It was a lot of fun to plow.

    I'm curious about that too. I've been thinking about getting a plow, but all the talk of how a plow stresses the truck (alignment, bending the frame, etc) has made me reconsider just getting a snow blower. Not to mention the cost of the plow vs. a snow blower.

    Between motor mounts, frame cracking, thin metal, and it only being partially boxed I would never plow with our trucks. Have fun with that.

    Saw a first generation Tacoma with a blade on the front this morning here in Moncton New Brunswick while visiting on Christmas vacation.

    He was plowing an uphill driveway with it and seemed to be doing fine.

    Did you put weight in the bed of the truck to aid traction?

    It handles just fine. Before buying the plow, I weighed the front axle to see how much weight I had left. It only had just under 300 lbs. left before I would go over my front axle rating. Therefore, I chose a super lightweight snowplow that weighs 275 lbs. I've been plowing for about 30 years with big trucks. This is my first little truck and so far it has been great. I put 300 lbs in the back behind the wheels to balance things off a bit. The Sno-Way plow is one of the most lightweight plows out there and it still can handle just about anything. Lots of fun.
