“My wife had her eye on the new Ford Ranger, and I had my eye on having a plow truck at our disposal. Living in northern Illinois, that means her Ranger gets to be my plow truck for about half the year. We pull it backwards into the garage so we can just open the garage and push snow out of the driveway.”
Can I Plow with a Ford Ranger?
Some folks are concerned whether or not their Ford Ranger is even capable of plowing snow. After all, it is a lighter duty pickup truck. But we’re happy to tell you that even your Ford Ranger can plow snow with ease. These are some of the other frequently asked questions we get about plowing with a Ford Ranger:
- Q: What is the best way to mount a snow plow on my Ranger?
- A: Most of our plows will require (or ship with) a front-mount receiver hitch which will allow you to easily place and remove the plow again and again. Several others may ship with a custom plow mount that will bolt to your factory frame.
- Q: How does the Ranger handle when plowing snow?
- A: Like a champ! Sure, it’s a light-duty truck, but it’s a tough one! If you’re able to put some weight in the bed (bags of rock salt work great) you’ll see an even more balanced ride as the weight will work as a counter-weight or ballast.
- Q: What size plow should I order?
- A: The one thing to keep in mind is that your plow needs to be wider than your track width. For your 2019 or later Ford Ranger, that’s 61.4”. Since we don’t sell a plow that’s not at least 80” wide, anything you see here will work!
What are the Best Snow Plows for a Ford Ranger?
The good news is there are many great Ford Ranger Snow Plows because the Ranger is one of the best pickups on the market to use in snow applications. It can carry most all plows on its front-end and it has the horsepower under the hood to make short work of tall snowdrifts. We’ve talked to countless customers over the years to bring you the Top 3 Ford Ranger Snow Plows:
