    i see a few of you do plow with the 02 chevy, i also forgot to add that mine has the 4:10 ratio, does this affect plowing? make it better etc?

    The 4.10's are normally an asset in a plow truck but with the 8.1, gear ratio isn't as critical as they have more than enough power to do the job without working the truck hard. If it was a 6.0 truck then the 4.10's would be more of a necessity rather than an asset.

    Well,I never put too much faith in the weather forecasters but so far, and as usual, I've heard everything from cold temps throughout the winter with plenty of precipitation, to warmer than average temps and an average snow fall. So I guess it's up in the air as usual.:cry:
