    Do you have any pics or any more info on it?? A K3500 will definatly make a good plow truck. Just if it is dually, diesel, etc we will be able to better answer your questions

    trust me that 454 will push like crazy we have one and it never runs out of power. its my favorite truck and we have newer diesels but i still like the big block horsepower and torque.

    It would do the job just fine... it'll be a little hard on gas but the extra power the 454 has will make up for it.

    Btw, since you haven't seen the truck in person yet, is there a pic in the ad? Are you aware that it would be an old body style truck? Just checking...
