I just picked up a 4 door '96 Tahoe myself. I'll let you know how it goes plowing, if we ever get any snow here in NJ .

GG.........I had a 2 door 'Ho with a hard mount 7-6 Western. Plowed great,
easy to turn etc. A 4 door is about as long as a ex-cab pickup anyhoo.

Only problem was snow build up and fogging of side/rear windows.

Great family truckster too.....geo

I don't know George but I think the 4 door Yukon or Tahoe is the same wheel base as a reg pick-up. Once you get to the XL version now your getting longer. But anyways a Yukon or Tahoe wouldn't be to bad for plowing but remember generally your basically looking at a 1/2 ton truck. Unless you got a 2500 or 3500, I think 3500 may only be available as a Suburban I think. Hope this helps.

I used to plow with a 98 Tahoe 4dr. I had a 7.5 foot western unimount poly pro on it. I did have to crank the torsion bars about 7 turns and put in timbrens to handle the weight. I plowed with it for three winters before I traded it in and I never had a problem with it. Your truck should do better with the lighter Blizzard on it and the Tahoe is definitely shorter than an extended cap pickup with a better turning radius.
An excellent plow vehicle for residential work.

GG - I have a 99 Tahoe and just put a Blizzard 760LT on it. Just waiting for some G%& D*$# snow. Put timbrens on it and cranked the torsion bars 4 turns. Handles the plow well in transport. Haven't plowed with it yet, but I'll let you know. Have put a bunch of pics up on this site. Search for my user ID and you should find the threads with the pics. Good luck!

A good friend of mine has a 99 Tahoe with a 8 1/2' blade on it. This guy is nuts. The truck has held up much better then I would have thought. This thing is excellent to turn and handle. Maybe a few blind spots but not to bad. The only problem is if the snow is heavy then the truck is a little light. Once you get your first pass cut in it does quite well.

Tahoe Plows

I have a 2004 tahoe Z71 with a 7.5ft Fisher RD plow and it works great plowing (mostly lots and a few drive ways) and its comfortable with the heated seats. I did put the timbrens in the front and left the torsion bars alone, since I heard you can do some damage playing with those. With the plow raised the truck only squats about 3/4". My neighbor has a 2002 tahoe with a Fisher 8ft HD plow and the Timbrens and the truck only squats about 1" with the plow raised. He plows for the city and says it works as good as his old 3/4 ton pickup.

The only problem is trying to find a dealer to do the install since the front end of the truck is not rated from the factory to be "strong" enough to hold a plow, but I haven't heard of any problems. Good luck
