The only 2wd's that work as plow trucks are the DOH dump trucks with 10 tons of salt and a spreader in the back, with chains on all 4 rear tires... and once they are out of salt, they are stickin' to the clear roads, headin' to the barn for a refill so they can keep moving.
You are wasting your time and money if you put a plow on a small truck like yours that's not 4x4. I'd buy an old beater and put a plow on it for snow season... early '80's short bed chevy p/u, or K-5 blazers are popular around here, short and easy to manuver, another guy who's a Mopar fan has 2 or 3 old Ramchargers with the back roof cut off to make a really short bed truck, and small salt spreaders mounted in the back. Small, and good weight distribution, he does good with them... has sevral contracts with local fast-food places, they work great in the smaller parking lots he does.
