I've only got one thing on this, I'm a bit partial because my uncle and I used to sell them in northeast ohio. Boss Snowplow. www.bossplow.com The only downside, our trucks aren't built with that strong of frontends for the normal plow. The only application that is suggested from the factory is a 7foot straight blade poly. It has the easy on and off connection though, you pull into it, connect the power and control cable and go to the cab, move one of the switches and the plow will hop right onto the mount, go back out and flip a switch on the light tower and your ready to go. Hope that helps a little bit.

The Nissan dealer in Anchorage has a plow on an XE 2008 King cab Long bed. I can't recall who makes it, but it's made for the Titan according to their parts manager. It's their lot truck, used for lot work and plowing the heavy snow.

Personally I'd strongly reccomend not putting a plow on a half ton, the front ends will often develop early problems, because of the weight (even on light-duty plows). Some guys bolster suspensions with airbags which can help prevent some problems. But even GM's HD's with their IFS are not as resiliant of a snowplow truck that has a solid-front-axle 2500/3500 pickup, like Ford and Dodge have.

I just went through the "snowplow" purchase ordeal....What I found is that the only listing for the titan was with western plows and that was their lightest plow the suburbanite.. It is also the only listing for Dodge 1500s.They also claim they have an easier mounting system then Boss. After careful consideration as to wether I wanted to put a plow on the Titan, I decided to revive my old F150 and put it on there.
However, what I had to do to mount the Boss V 7'6" was beef up the front with Timbren suspension blocksafterall the blade alone weighs 800lbs! . And there is a requirement of 500 lbs of ballast in the box behind the rear wheels. I have talked to other owners who say they use the airbag in the coils up front and also in the back and are given a much smoother ride. When i received my timbrens , I found that there is a listing for our truck http://www.timbren.com/timbren-application-guides/nissan.htm I am very pleased with my plow..I cant see myself ever buying a straight plow again after buying a V.... It is amazing how much quicker it is to plow a lot and how high it will stack snow....Word of advice is go real slow in unfamiliar terrain and remeber to retighten all bolts often. I hope this has helped. Goodluck.

funny thing about that is the dealer here in madison wisconsin where i bought my truck has a ford f250 for plowing their lot. The salesman told me not to put on a plow because it will void a lot of warrantied items. i am in need of a plow but might buy an old f25o or even a farm tractor for the job. I don't want to damage my beautiful truck. thanks for all the great info.

I live in Massachusetts, around here we don't like boss to much, the frame hangs low to the ground, preventing you to push piles up, unless you want to burn some rubber to get yourself out, if you can at all.

fisher has been around a long time, but still in my opinion the best plow around.

Recently in my travels I saw a plow in Bloomington IL on a Titan (member truck?) It looked very small and light compared to a standard plow. The lip of the plow didn't go over the head lights - barely reached the grill. Not really worth it in my opinion.

Anyway - plowing your own driveway or a neighbors is okay but commercial 'for rent' plowing is hard on a drive train. I'd suggest buying a snowblower if it's just for you or buying an old POS with a plow already attached.

Around here you can always pick up an old blazer or 1/2 ton for around $500 that has some sort of old plow on it.

I remember a few years back seeing a titan with a blizzard plow frame on it. Personally I like the blizzard with the extendable wings, that's what I had on my plow truck last year and I loved it. This year I'm using a fisher minute mount 2 which is also a pretty solid plow. But personally I would not want to put my own truck through that kind of abuse.

I was recently home on leave and mentioned this idea to my uncle, he said maybe if we could find a set of air helper springs or adjustable air shocks along with a timbren setup, otherwise, he also thought it wasn't worth the stress for our trucks. Maybe if it was possible to find much stronger springs for it and do some major upgrades, even then, just get an old one ton.
