    Perhaps you could give the UK'ers some tips. Half the country is likely to be at a standstill!!

    with 2" of snow, most people would get out in their FWD cars, and get stuck, about as far from Cell reception as they could. Stupid really. The whole country grinds down for such a piddling ammount, and the weather/transport people tell us not to drive unless necessary.

    Aged 7 or 8, I used to walk to school through 8" to a foot of snow, when we lived in North yorshire/scotland, and I don't ever remember cars getting particularly stuck then.

    Back on topic for a second. To move the kind of snow you are talking about, you want to stay away from a plastic/lexan/plexi-glass whatever blade. They are too light and won't scrape down to clear ground. You need the typical metal style Boss, Western (insert your fav brand) type blade. These are great for snow removal. Problem is they are heavy. Snow plowing in general is very hard on a standard pick-up. If you plan to keep the blade on the truck most of the winter, you are going to need heavy duty springs up front. And expect wear and tear on your nice new truck. Things just tend to break or fail alot faster than normal. Check with your dealer to make sure it's done in a way to not affect your warranty.

    I live in MN so I understand what your talking about with the snow. Myself, and many others around here won't put a plow on a new truck. After you've done it you learn that it's actually cheaper to have an old junker for plowing than it is to keep replacing parts in a newer truck. But if you don't have the space to store that junker the rest of the year you're going to need to build up your truck to take the abuse. Does your truck have a trailer towing package? If so, you might have a tranny cooler already. Your best bet is to talk to someone does alot of plowing in your area and see what they have done. Good luck.

    I think the snow will be enough to cool the tranny
