Pretty confident that the alternator capacity has nothing to do with the fact that there is no snow plow prep option. I think that the only trucks that can be rated to carry a small plow are the HD trucks, and those are restricted to light plows for personal use only.
I don't think the front suspension was ever designed to handle the abuse of carrying a plow. That, IMHO, is the week link here.
