    I just traded my 2000 Silverado 1500 for a 2002 Avalanche 1500. I have a 7'6" fisher RD MM2 on my silverado, any suggestions for a plow for this Avalanche? I'm looking for something thats a little less money than what I had on my silverado. I use this primarily for driveways. Thanks.

    I had several people tell me when I was thinking about getting an avalanche to put a sno way on it. Makes sense, light weight but has down pressure. These particular trucks aren't made for commercial plowing but you get the right plow, should be ok.

    STEVE........That Fisher will bolt right on to that AV ! The
    frames are the same. You will prob. have to buy a new headlight
    wiring setup tho.

    There are a couple of guys around my area running 8 ft./9 ft.
    Fisher set ups............. Their noses sure are low tho.
    Prob. could benefit from a torsion bar crank and a set of Timbrens.
    They comment they plow pretty good tho. with the short wheelbase.

    If you have to get a new plow a Western straight blade setup is also
    lighter and bulletproof...........Another plus is most Fisher spare parts
    will work on the Western rigs since the hydralics/lights are similar.
