Winter is on its way, and for some parts of the country, snow removal prep season is upon us. Up for consideration today are two running, driving, American 4x4 pickups. Both have clean titles and come equipped with what the seller claims is a $1500-1600 plow setup; both have a crack in the windshield, and both are asking $2500.

First up is this 1988 GMC K2500.

The details:

8' bed
Extended cab
Trans replaced 3 yrs ago
Motor replaced last year; not even 1000 miles on it since

Next up, we have this 1997 Ford F-250.

So, let’s assume you need a cheap second or third vehicle to plow heavy snow from a long driveway or parking lot, and also make the short commute to work in winter weather and occasionally haul landscaping/construction materials from the local HD. Pick your plow truck in the poll below, and add your own suggestions in the comments.
