    The Sub's are not a recommended application for the mid-weights due to their low front axle weight rating but they do push snow rather well...even without rear ballast. But the ballast is usually needed to offset the plow weight anyway. And along with a T-bar adjustment and a set of Timbrens will carry the plow as well as any 1/2 ton pickup.

    It's the length and poor rear visibility thats the biggest problems with them.

    You might consider the Snoway for the weight savings

    I have a 1/2 ton Yukon XL with 7.5 Fisher RD, sags now but bought the timbrens and just need to install them. I will post some pictures as soon as I get the Timbrens in. Here in ME I see a few yukons/tahoes/burbs with plows. I won't plow anything with it but my driveway slow and steady but I think it is a decent setup IMO.....Mark
