Here are some pictures of my 1998 Ram 1500 with an 8 foot Arctic snowplow.
I have a lift kit in, but did a spring swap also.
My truck had stock springs with a spacer block in the front.
I changed the stock front springs to Dayton #350-1202SD ( I paid $145.00 for the pair ) springs.
They will raise the front 1 3/4" over the stock spring.
Each spring is rated at 1770 lbs over the 770 lbs of the stock spring.
If you are the guy driving you truck and only your home and some family members you will have no issue plowing with the 1500.
