Default Best Snow Plow for Colorado

I'm thinking about getting a light weigh plow for my truck - for light duty plowing (driveways, etc).

What do you think is the best one? If you have one, what do you use?

I'm thinking of the Fisher Homesteader designed for SUVs and light-weight pickups.

My truck is a 2011 4x4 Z85, crew cab. Do you think that's OK? Or do I need Z71?

Plowing snow is tough duty on any truck. I have even seen a blade on a 4WD Geo Tracker.
Most of the people in my area plow snow with at least a 1/2 ton truck and most would prefer a 3/4 ton truck.
I am not saying you can't do it.
The truck will be longer, plowing snow requires good technics, front suspension and tires takes a beating and gas mileage drops.
These are a few things to consider.

There is a member on here with a plow setup on his.I think he cranked the torsion bars more to level it out with the plow on in the winter months.
