Default Snow plow?

Would a 4.0 ranger be good for plowing snow? Im not sure if it would have the power for plowing central Pennsylvania snow or if the suspension is strong enough in the front for the weight of a v plow

I think pooleo runs a plow on one of his rangers, but I do not think it is a V. Search for his profile and maybe send him a message for advice. Either that or wait to see if he posts in here.

I wouldn't even plow snow with a f150. Lotsa f150s driving around my town that look really screwed up from plowing snow. I'd only put a plow on a f250 or bigger

well a lightweight plow would be best like the snow-way plow.....

and with anything from a ranger to a f150 to a f250 theres gonna be added stress from plowing on alternators, cooling system, lower balljoints.... but its certainly possible

I only see older f-150s and alot of super duties with plows but I don't have the money to upgrade to a bigger truck. I know of a school that has a ranger with a plow but never knew how well it worked

My old boss has one on his ranger, it's like a 92 or before but with the 4.0. Heavier metal plow but it works good. Up here in Michigan I've seen a few ranger with plows on them, either the newer western poly plows or the snow way. I would put one on mine if I found one cheap.
