    Hi, Im replying to an old ad of yours in regards to your 2006 Duramax, dually.

    Im looking to buy a truck for snow plowing.
    I found a 2006, gmc, dually, 6.6 duaramx, extended cab, long box.
    Im hearing that the front end of these trucks is too weak for snow plowing. Im actaully hearing that when the plow is on, it exceeds the max.weight rating.

    Since you were an owner of the same truck Im looking at, Im wondering if you had any advice.

    Thanks for your time.

    John go ahead and plow with it. I had a 2004 CC dually with a Western 8'6" V and I had the wings on it also. You should be fine. They are looking at having the truck loaded with people.

    Thanks fo rthe reply. Thats what I love about this site, everyone is helpfull.

    I usually plow alone or with one other guy helping out, but I do however carry on a slide in salter, that normally holds one yard or a bit more.

    I currently run a 4996, chevy 2500, 6.5 turbo diesel, 4x4, extende cab & long box.
    Shes a good truck & I want to keep it as a second truck, just incase.
    My issue with the chevy is that its always overheating on me. I cranked up the torsion bars a bit, but still the same thing.

    Someone mentioned to me yesterday, that I should change the thermostat.
    Im thinking, since the readiator has never been changed on this truck since Ive owned it (10 years),
    maybe I should just change the whole rad & get a new thermostat with it.

    Im sorry to ask, but any thought :??
    Did you ever have an overheating problem with your dually ?

    Again, thanks for your time.
