    I know this probably has been beat like a dead horse around here...but...

    I'm about to pick up a new style 2007 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab with the 6.0 gas motor.

    I am thinking about a stainless 8.5 Fisher V-Plow (a 8.5 Blizzard Speedwing was mentioned also).

    Could any of you who have experience with a V on a 2500HD let me know if there are any issues with the plow being too heavy and damaging the truck at all?

    I would not want to jeopardize my new truck by choosing the wrong plow.

    Go for it, you won't have any problems. Crank the T-bars a bit and add a set of timbrens if you want.

    I personally don't use them but it's a must for alot. Check the top of the page and click on Timbrens. They are just a rubber stop for the front suspension.

    Yes, it's heavy. With the added weight of those plows and the Duramax motor, your putting stress on the front end components. I plan on hanging a Boss XT V-plow on my 2005 Chevy but the more I think about it, I will probably just get an 8'2" instead of the 9'2". I just dont want to stress the front end anymore than is needed.

    As for the 6.0 gas motor, hell put damn near anything you want on it! Just my 0.02:salute:

    I have the 8'6", any smaller and it won't clear the trucks path. I don't plow with 6 people in the truck and I run a lot of ballast. I don't have any problems.

    Liability reason's. This is the 6th winter for my 02 and I havn't had any problems other then one set of ball joints. The truck has 160k on it. If you were going to run around with a V box with 2 ton in it all the time I'd maybe suggest someting a little lighter.

    I looked at an 07 2500HD extended cab duramax. Then the dealer told me no plow or no warranty. I said I'll keep my gas truck thanks. If you want a diesel and a plow... better buy a *cough ford cough*
