Default Plowing with the Ranger

hey everybody, its been snowing here the past few days and i have seen some rangers with plows on them. i know rangers are not built to be used as plow trucks, I was curious what makes them not plow trucks and why people still use them as plow trucks

Weight mainly. You can do light plowing with a small truck, but when it snows a TON, like it is here now, you need something bigger to plow with. Look at the city plow trucks, they're 2wd dump trucks, but weigh a lot. Weight is key.
