    the blade is a 7.5' The pic is from a camera phone, so it is a little off. Yes I have Timbrens. The front of the truck is squatting about 1-2 inches, not too bad.

    How low is that mount hanging off the front of the truck? I ask because the Western Dealers around here all tell me I can put a Western 7.5 Pro on my 04 1500. But I have heard the mounts come down pretty low? Pics would help!

    Nice set up. I'm kicking myself in the a$$ for not going 3/4 D/A.

    The pro plus is a very nice plow.I was looking at them a few weeks ago at the big E very well built.One thing i noticed is it seemed the A frame portion of the plow was longer ,it looks like the plow is further out infront of the truck.If you look just right it makes the front end like its sagging more than it really is.It showed the most of chevys, maybe its a combo of the design of the chevy front end the pro plus.?

    i believe it to be a longer then usual a-frame this is because the proplus angles further then most plows.

    I am in Columbia. I used S&S Auto performance in Annapolis. PM me if you want more info. I went with them becuase they seem to have the most knowlege of the product and they really treated me well. not only that they were well priced. plus they are open 24 hours during a storm!

    Well if you ever need something fix on your plow try R&B STEEL in rockville. These guys are steel fabrication shop that can make anything and fix anything for plows. Dont no what the prices ae like have not needed anything for about two years. Why only 7 1/2 not 8 I seam to run over snow with my 7 1/2. Want to sell my 7 1/2 poly pro and get 8 pro plus or a vee wife says no way.

    salopez,

    Nice plow and welcome to the plus club ;) You won't regret it one bit. You will love the wings. I move more snow with my wings than any of the v's on our job site. Do your best to get them on before the first snow. You WILL want them to wear with the cutting edge.

    I bought mine from Dana as well. They are a very knowledgeable company, had a huge inventory, and I did a little bit better on pricing from them than the other two Maryland dealers.

    NEXTDAYSIGNS,

    Did you try end of summer RV's off of Route 15? I'm taking mine there next month to get it serviced.
