Do You Have A Plow On Your Tundra?

I have a 7.5' Fisher SD on my 2010 Tundra. I'm starting to se alot more Tundras around with plows on them. My Tundra plows great.

Not yet, been thinking about it though but can't decide if it should be the Tundra or the Jeep. Jeep is easier to manuvear but the Tundra is a bit heavier.

Oh, well it's still early so I'll just sit tight until we get the first 3' snowfall of the year in Tucson, AZ.

Get a Cummins 4BT engine swap in the Jeep, and some studded tires, and do stuff that others would just say "Nope."

On another note, saw a video on Youtube of a snowblower that had a 2cylinder turbo-diesel swap on it, and that thing flung 1 foot thick snow about 30 feet. Pretty cool. I would post it up on here, but work doesn't like youtube, lol.

Nothing special. Yet...

How does your Tundra handle it? I wanted to put a 7.5' Boss trip edge on my Tundra, but the Boss dealer toled me it was to heavy for a Tundra. Since I wanted a trip edge I went to the Fisher dealer and the Fisher dealer toled me that a 7.5' HD is to heavy for a Tundra. So, I got a 7.5' Fisher SD. I realy like it. I have owned plows since I was 15. I love plowing.

this Guy has a plow...

Quote:
Hey everyone. My cousin has a 2010 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. He installed a snow plow on it this past winter and was having a hell of a time working with it since it sits so slow. The plow and the mounting points are constantly getting banged up and scraped on inclines or bumps. He asked me to find out what I could about a lift kit and I ended up here.

He drives this car as a daily driver in addition to using it for work. There's a bit of a concern on the overall practicality on what suspension kit goes on there. In addition, it would be interesting to know if the plow would adjust to a higher right height by itself or if it would need modification.

I have included some pictures and a link to a video of the truck bottoming out on an incline. If anybody can toss me some advice with what options exist for this truck it would be greatly appreciated!





























Here's the video of the truck.

I don't have my plow on, but I love plowing and I think about it all the time.

Actually, the Liberty Turbo Diesel is 2.8L and mine is putting out 370 ft/lb of torque (compare to a Tundra 400 ft/lb) so a swap wouldn't be necessary. A lot of these are fitted with plows but they have a similiar problem to the Tundra (I suspect) in that the plow wt makes the front sag awfully low.

Oh, I wouldn't take any newer vehicle out to plow snow. I'd take a beater Jeep or Bronco or something like that. I can't justify trashing a newer vehicle for plowwing snow.

The Tundra is great plow vehicle, I run a Snoway 29 series on mine. The big T can take the weight of real plow... no idea why more manufacturers don't produce one for it.

I have added a 3x1 lift on one truck and last year I added Bilstein 5100 to the front. You need to raise the truck in the front a little so the mount bar clears well. The 5100s perform very well. They dampen the bounce you get when loaded/raised. The Tundy carries the Boss better than the Ford or Chevy 2500 - I've had them side by side and driven all 3 with the same blade.

mercer me, why on earth did you not opt for the 5.7L tundra vs. the marginal snow plow engine of the 4.6L you have if you love to plow so much? If you got the ambition, you can make serious money plowing parking lots, etc. and pay for the plow components in 1 winter around here usually.
