    Well, the time to wonder has passed. But I have an 01 and haven't done any plow specific damage to it. But I just do a few drives for myself and my family.

    Take the plow off when not plowing and take it easy and you will be fine. New trucks will actually hold a plow better then a old truck, plus I find the new trucks stand up better to abuse. JMO

    Got an 07 Duramax as well my friend... I use it for EVERYTHING.... It tows 5 days a week, plows in the winter, and takes me and my lady to breakfast every sunday morning. Take care of it, take it easy, treat it good and you won't be having issues. goodluck.

    Yep- just don't beat on it and you'll be fine- be smart while plowing- don't slam into frozen piles at 20 miles an hour, wait to shift until totally stopped, things like that and you'll be fine.

    Also taking the plow off when you're not using it helps too- as soon as my plowing route is done the plow comes off. The MM is so easy to take on/off anyway so there's really no excuse...ussmileyflag

    Bought a 07 new body style crew cab.Duramax with the allison auto. Am going into my 3rd season plowing, run a Boss 9.2 with wings (11 ft.). Put timbrens on the front and back also run about 2000 lbs. of salt in back. Snow-ex 1875 on the back, take it easy, you'll be ok.. Great trucks..........
