    I'm working on getting pictures of the blade up! Yeah Its not my truck, but I might like to put a plow on my escalade suv just to push it down my driveway to get to the plow yard! I think with timbrins it would work!

    Such a nice truck, Im surprised they didn't paint that plow.. It will do as well as any other chevy 1500 except you have heated seats and a better stereo..lol

    That things going to squat like a pig, and probably blow out the front air susp in the meantime. I mean, its sweet, I'm just sayin. My buddie f'd up his Escalade by towing his trailer with it.

    I can't believe it has a joystick, and thet they screwed it right to the dash.

    Quite a bit more to it than that. They run an entirely different suspension and steering than the trucks. ;)

    It probably retired guy with lot money to burn.

    Saw 07 Lincoln LT with boss V plow last winter it didn't sag bad enough but can't believe owner would do that.

    Wow. I don't even see people driving their Escalades in the snow around here, much less plow with one! They are probably my favorite SUV though. That would be funny to watch.

    At the very least, couldn't they have installed a new MM2 or something...or maybe paint it?? The rust and old style headlights on that thing look ridiculous.

    Of course...not even going to get into plowing with that suspension, or screwing the joystick to the dash...lol

    I have leather Captain's chairs in my rigs, I like them.

    What's that Escalade go for? 50G? And they put a $1,200 salvage yard plow on it?

    How many Fisher part numbers does it take to put a MM1 on an Escalade?:laughing:

    just get an LTZ Chevy/GMC or Lariat Superduty, much more capable and you get all the amenities, backup cams, backup sensors, heated/cooled seats, 6disc premium sound systems, sync bluetooth voice activated systems, all the bells and whistlesprsport

    I've seen a guy around here for the past few winters with a white one and an Ultramount if I remember right. I see him out just about every storm, so it must be holding up well enough. I guess I never see him actaully plowing though... Ugly plow and screwed in joystick on suck a nice truck. Oh well.

    In all reality those trucks arent that expensive anymore. My GF just bought a new Hummer and when we were at the dealer they had a used EXT (they are a cadilac dealer too) same as the one posted. Pearl white had ~50,000 miles really a nice truck... I almost bought it just for fun, they would have sold it to me for $18,200. I dont think I would hang a plow on it but if it was my only truck and my driveway was bigger why not.
