    Been told by a few a boss 8.2 vblade is to heavy for my truck becasue the weight of the diesel engine. Any others running this set up? Any issues with the weight?

    I have the same truck but an 2009. I have an 810 Blizzard with Timbrens. I think it's heavier then the Boss and it's been fine.

    I run a 9'2" Boss V on my CCSB dmax with timbrens up front and it holds it like a champ!

    Ran a 9.2 on my 02 since new with no Timbrens and had no problems until I sold it last spring. Most wear from heavy blades comes from driving around aimlessly with the blade on your truck with no snow snow in the forcast. Put your blade on when you need it and take it off when you don't and you'll be fine.

    A lot of the problem is you have a crew cab. The way they rate the truck/plow combo is by the truck capacity, meaning if for some stupid reason you were to plow with 6 people in your truck you would be overloaded with an 8'2. I had the same problem. Buy the plow you want and either install it yourself or pay a plow shop guy a few bucks to do it on the side. That truck will handle the plow you want no problem, just make sure you use the right amount of ballast.
