    Thank you

    Would that be the biggest plow I could have installed? Was hoping for a 8 ft

    If it were me putting a plow on my '04 1500 Crew I would opt for the lightest plow I could buy. The 4L60E is already a weak trans and the G80 locker will likely puke its guts out under the additional stress of plowing.

    If you install it yourself you can put on whatever you like. I run a BOSS V 7'6" with wings (makes it 9'4")on a Dodge 1500.
    They are worried about front axle capacity. Some States get picky about thinks like that. Where I am they do not care. It is harder on the frontend but parts are cheap.

    Consider a 26R Series Snoway. They are light in weight and with true down pressure you can scrap and back drag with ease. With the retractable wings it becomes an 8' blade that the wings will fold to move more snow than a regular straight blade.

    I have a 7 1/2 foot Western Poly UltraMount on mine. It's a good fit for my standard cab, short bed. It and or the truck may go up for sale this year? Both real nice. Truck has 59,000 mi., I used the plow for several driveways, quit doing drives couple years ago. Just do mine and family now.
