Well the short version is, will it be worth it to you? I would weigh the options, and then make a decision. First, how much snow do you have to plow? Next, how much will it cost to install the plow on the cheap? How much to do it correctly? What condition is the truck in? Is this your only vehicle or a vehicle that will become a work truck? Are you planning on making money by plowing for others? Would another option such as a snow blower or tractor with a plow be a better option? And finally how often does it snow where you are? The second question depends on the suspension on the truck. If you have the heavy duty springs you can do so without modifications. Otherwise, from what I've seen you'll need the heavy duty front springs. Without answers to these, it's hard to determine if it's a good idea for you to do put a plow on your truck.
