Sierra Denali... Good Idea?

I'm new to this forum and am trying to decide whether or not to buy a plow. I have a 2002 GMC Sierra Denali AWD (w/ Quadrasteer). After searching around I haven't found much information about plowing with them. I only plan to plow my driveway (300' paved) here in Maine. We get quite a bit of snow each winter and plowing with my 400cc Kawasaki Prairie just isn't fun anymore. I plan to keep the truck for at least 5 more years.

Does anyone have any recommendations? It looks like the Blizzard 7600 LT and the Fisher 7 1/2 SD/LD could fit with some cutting of the bumper (which I am open to).

Do you think this is a good idea?

If you have a Sno-Way dealer in your area, you may want to look into the 22 or 26 series with down pressure. Much lighter, but VERY durable.

This topic has been touched on before and dont be afraid of a larger plow.

scroll down the page and see his denali with the plow
08 Ram 2500 Cummins(no plow)

04' John Deere X475 w/ 4.5ft (54inch) plow BRING ON THE SNOW!!!

I push dirt in the summer to make up for the lack of snow

The only thing I would say about a denali is that they are all wheel drive and do not have four wheel drive. My truck has auto four wheel drive and sometimes I can plow in and sometimes I can't. Just today I had to switch to four wheel drive to get through some snow (not plowing). Other than that I see no differences between a denali and a regular sierra.
