Do the Cummins swap! You won't be sorry.SnakePlissken said:Cool yeah I was wondering because I own a '90 dodge cummins that I got t-boned in so its shot but I was either going to restore the ramcharger and keep it the same or put that cummins in it if its not anything special.
im a salesman for the three American brands and I can confirm a plow from the factory is not an option. The plow prep package is of course. If the customer wants a plow we order the truck with the prep package then send the truck to boss or western, customer preference, and have the plow installed. The customer pays one price for the whole mess but it is aftermarket.Elwenil said:The plow could be installed from the factory, or it could be installed as either a Mopar accessory or a dealer could usually get the kits directly from the plow manufacturer a little cheaper. If it was a factory plow or Mopar accessory, it would be a Meyer plow kit. So if you have a Western, Fisher or other brand plow, it was added at the dealer or by an owner.
The snow plow prep package (Sno Fiter, Snow Commander or whatever) was a factory option, but like now, is available without the plow kit itself. As a matter of fact, I don't think you can get a plow factory mounted anymore unless you do the commercial fleet deal. At least the Ram website doesn't list it as a regular option anymore. Either way the plow prep package was just a group of normal options tossed together to support the plow, and were available separately. They basically consist of heavier front springs, heavy duty cooling and maybe a higher amp alternator. Stripes and decals were also sometimes part of the package but were less and less obvious as the years went on.
