    I am looking at a early 2011 Cummins. Does anyone know what the front axle rating is with the snow plow package? Also will it hold a V plow without having to put on timbrens?

    You will still need to put some sort of leveling component on the front the truck will still sag. Timbrens help out a little. I put on a 2" leveling kit on the front. All it is is a spring spacer that goes on over your front shock and spring. Truck only sags maybe a 1" now. Before With the timbrens it would still sag 2"-21/2"
