No Snoway dealers near me that I am aware of. I wouldn't go with anything but a Fisher, possibly a Boss if need be. There are a lot of Fisher dealers in and around where I live so it just makes sense. I should just buy the push plates on my own and cut the bumper myself.

I just got mine done at E.W. Sleeper in Concord, NH. The cost was $4540 and I got the Fisher HT with the Paddle, cutting edge, deflector and shoes.

Can you post a few pics? Also, maybe a close up of the push plates and how they cut the bumper.

Thanks!

I had a 2011 Silverado with Fisher HT. Just traded off to a 2013 Silverado and am working on installing a Meyer Super-V LD 7.5 now. We cut from the tow hook straight now and we never had problems with it "snapping"

Just had the Fisher HT installed today. All is well with only a few mishaps. The dealer scratched my hood and driver's side fender. Not any deep scratches, but they are there. I baby this truck and it only has 1400 miles on it so YES, I do know for a fact those were not there prior to install. They also forgot to put the wheel well plastic liner back under the bumper on the driver's side so they had to do that as well. Not a huge deal but still. Oh and they forgot to give me my owner's manual. LOL Plow works great, I do get the "snap" that others mentioned when backing out of the plow. Its loud, but hasnt broken anything as of yet. Here are some pics of the push plates and how they "notched" the bumper as well as the plow with the two new jackstands....

My dad has the original HT with the one jack stand and I must say this is much better with the two.

I think the notching came out OK. It could have been closer to the push plate IMHO but whatever. Thats the cost of wearing the plates and plowing.

You can't make them too close they have to have some room.

That's not too bad for notching. My Boss V needed more cutting to fit the mount. Its gotta be done to plow.

Agreed. Now that its been cut up for a while, I am already used to it and could care less. All I need now is some snow.

Hi mass I talked to the dealer about it they said it won't void it.
The only thing is if I break something because of plowing that won't be covered But I put the timbren load boosters on the front end it save it the truck does not dip at all when plow is on. I say go for it.I got the truck at liberty Chevy in Lynnfield in Mass.
