    As the title states. I have a 2011 Chevrolet 2500hd z71 duramax. The front end gross weight is 5200. I'm wanting the Boss DXT v plow 8'2.

    Good idea for this truck or bad? Was told this plow is a little too heavy for the truck.

    No problem. I'm running larger plows then that on my duramax with 4800lb front ends. Had an 810 on my 09 CCSB.

    I would change out the bars for the 6000lbs ones.

    You will hardly even know the blade is on there.
