    I am new to the business. I have an 05 Tahoe Z71 I I would like to know if I can put a V-plow on it? I plan on using tibren rubber springs and any other suspension enhancements necessary to build it up to carry extra weight. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I'd just go buy a stronger truck that can handle a plow without all the issues of up grading the Tahoe suspension.. I run one Tahoe, it has a three man shoveling crew in it and works great for that.

    Thanks for your help everyone. I bought a 2007 F-250 Super Duty 16,000 Mi. I am putting on a Fisher 8'6" V plow. Should get me going quite well. Again, thanks.

    Go with the Midweight, or get a bigger truck

    Believe it or not I bought my 9' unimount off of a guy that had it mounted to a 99 tahoe. I thought he was crazy. This thing squats my 3/4 ton like there is no tomorrow, I can't even imagine what his poor little Tahoe looked liked with the plow raised.
    I would stick to a max of a 7 1/2 foot straight plow and forget about it.
