I'm in the market to buy and love idea of small diesel. Do any of you guys have experience with putting a small plow for 1 driveway, residential use? My truck now is a Chevy 1500 HD, they no longer make any 1/2 ton "HD" models. I'm concerned about the dial shifter having only used the column shifter I can I can operate with the plow control in my hand. Also, conconcerned about how stout the front end is. I'm thinking about loading an outdoorsman to my liking as it will also be my daily driver. I think I need antislip diff and would like 17"S as I've gone through 4 sets of studded snows in 12 years and I think it would be cheaper. Also could buy certified used '14 loaded limited 12k miles for $45 and think it has skidplates on 20" s. Not sure if air susp good or bad for me. Thoughts on setup, experience, deal would be appreciated, thanks.
