    I have a 2006 Silverado 1500 Z-71. I want to put a plow on it for a second rig. Will this be a problem and what plow would you recommend. I am looking at plowing some small commercial properties.

    I would stick with a 1/2 ton plow for a 1/2 ton truck.

    Snoway 26 series, right balance, weight and size. The down pressure makes it more effective for back dragging and frozen/icy conditions.
