    The Snow Sport goes for $1300 at AA here. Not sure how heavy duty it is though. Phantom's link might be a better bet though since there's a full review about it on TN.

    IMO, snow plowing is extremely hard on a truck, so if I needed to do some plowing I`d go get an older domestic, "beater", sometimes there in the paper for around $ 2,500.complete w/plow.

    Agreed.. plowing should be left to the 3/4 tons

    No doubt it can be done, be sure to heed the advice in Phantoms post about knowing where your plowing.I definately think it would be fun though.BTW several years ago I asked a guy who owned a lawn care service (plowing in winter months) and he said he`s used all three brands of domestics and it," tears `em all up".
