    hey do you guys think if i got a used 08-09 silverado that i could put a plow on it? I dont know if a 1500 can handle it. I dont know can a 1500 dodge ram handle it either. I would like to have a wideout on it but im not sure if it can handle it. It would prob be a v8 4.6L 4x4. What do you think?

    Wont handle a wideout. We have 7'6" westerns on ours and they barely handle that. We had to lift the front end 1 1/2" and put timbrens in them. The new GMC/Chevy's SUCK. We have 4 of them

    A lighter weight plow such as a SnoWay will work fine on that truck.

    Why not just buy a 2500 if you want to put a plow on it? Why screw around.

    I agree. Go for a 2500 or 3500. You can get great deals right now.ussmileyflag

    2008 2009 chevy 1500 plowtruck.........

    I own a 2008 1500 Chevy which I plow commercial and Residential with and could be happier with......Had a 1500 dodge with off-road package and hated it. I have a fisher 7 6 plow on the Chevy never had any problems with it.
