Default 2013 ram 1500 plowing

Hi all, right now I'm plowing with a 2010 dodge ram 1500 trx4 with a Boss sport duty plow. It does pretty good and I only do my own driveway. Does anyone know or think that the new ram 1500 with the airbag suspension will be able to plow snow with a sport duty plow? I'm looking into getting a longhorn.

It's the same frame. The air bags should make it feel better. ESP with the load leveling. In just not sure ram is going to recommend putting a plow on a 1500

another member or two also use a plow on their Rams
one of them said that they put extra weight back by the tailgate, to help keep the load balanced a bit more

I mentioned this elsewhere on this site. Ford flat out stated they do not recommend plows on the front of the F150 because of the electric power steering unit. Thinking Ram is getting the same for '13? Would think the same recommendations will follow it.

Default TLC for your 2010

FYI, You could add TotalLoadControl™ air suspension to your 2010.

I also own a BOSS sport poly plow that I had on my 2006 dodge ram 1500 . When I traded in my 2006 dodge ram 1500 for a new 2013 Ram 1500 Express quad cab I told them that my new ram I needed the trailer tow package and that I wanted to put my BOSS plow on my new ram . They said yes I can and the dodge dealer took my undercarriage and wiring harness off my 2006 dodge ram 1500 that I traded in and gave it back to me . Now it's fall time right before the snow comes I go to have my BOSS plow put on and no one will put it on because dodge says no because of electronic steering ! BOSS plows have no application for the new ram 1500 ! I went to fisher and they have 3 types of plows to put on the new ram the homestead plow , HT , SD PLOWS . why is it fisher has plows listed for the new 2013 rams ? Does fisher run a totally different plow system electric wise ?
