Default '01 Lariat plowing

Is the '01 F-150 Lariat 4x4 capable of average driveway plowing? If so, what plows do you guys recommend? My neighborhood is just outside city limits, and county typically doesn't plow my culdesac until a day or 2 after or into a big storm. Just want to be able to plow out my driveway, and quickly do the culdesac.

My neighbor has an '03 Scab 4x4 he has used to plow since he got it. Our street is a quarter mile long, and he usually does it every time we have a bad storm if the guy down the street with the 350 doesn't. He has a nice BOSS plow for it, and it still runs strong today, no issues.

My dad has plowed the past 3 winters with his 02 crew with a Western plow and has been great. Plows through everything Wisconsin has thrown at it so far.

If you don't have one, a trans cooler might be a good idea.
