    Nice new truck! I remember some one on here talking about how the intensifire lights match the '08 chevy headlights, I think it really looks good.


    What engine is in it?

    Isn't the 8' Pro a heavy plow for the 1500?

    I guess its a matter of who you ask. Its 699 pounds and i plow alone not with 5 people in the truck. when i lift the plow the front only drops 3/4 of a inch and it drives and rides alot better than my 2500HD did so me and my back are happy. Western makes and sells the mounts for the 1500 so there must be a reason.

    looks great man I'm not sure if your getting a spreader or not. I'd throw some salt bags, sand bags or block in the back to keep the back tires from spinning. I'm sure you'll do great. I know what you mean by handing. I've got an 05 1500 z71 I wish I didn't lift the piss out of, id throw a plow on it. great looking truck!

    I put a Hiniker 700 on my 07 GMC crew and the front end hardly drops at all, plow only weights 458 maybe 480 with the shoes and snow deflector.

    The truck handles the weight just fine. I would say getting a 2 inch leveling kit for the front just to get the front end up where it belongs is a good idea. I think the lift makes more sense than the tinbrems and is alot cheaper. The front end only drops 3/4 of a inch when the plow is raised. I do have the 3950 front end with the z71 off road package.

    Yes it has the 2 inch leveling kit. The 2 inch doesnt make it level but i didnt want it that way. The 2 and 1/2 inch makes it closer to level if thats what you like but i like it with a little rake.

    Thanks for the info, i'm going think about it, i will see how it looks after the plow goes on, i rely didn't want to change the stance of the truck it is a vmax z71 but i have Denali wheels for the summer! i thought it might look a little funny if the front end rake changed by 2" with the 20"s on it .... thanks again
