    Hello, I recently bought a 2011 Tahoe after my 1500 truck's engine died. I had a new Fisher HT plow on the truck that I just bought last Janurary. My question is can I safely install this plow on my Tahoe? I have checked with 2 local Chevy dealers and they are recommending different advice. One dealer said the front end suspensions are the same for the Tahoe and 1500 Silverado truck, the other disagrees, saying that they are not the same, with the Tahoe having a lighter front end. Yet my Tahoe has the recommended 3600lb. rating for the Fisher HT plow. ??? I'm confused, has anyone out there mounted a plow on a late model Tahoe?

    Thanks a lot~

    I don't know if this helps but one of my favorite rigs of all time was my 96 4 door tahoe with 7.5 fisher rd plow. I added timbrens, and heavier ply tires and it was a beast. I might have had a tub or two of sand in the rear for balance. I see tahoe's in my area with plows so it can be done. It sure is plowing in luxuary.

    Yes the front ends are the same, the rear ends are different. It'll handle it fine.

    Like I said on the in the Non Comercial Forum. Your HT should go on your Tahoe with no problems. Get it put on don't worry about it.

    go the fisher engineering and check the e-match system. it will be your best bet to check compatibiltiy. as a sales rep for a plow shop, we use it daily. i am thinking on doing it on my 1999 tahoe. it has 193k on it

    i just ran e-match, and I had to use 2010 to get a suv and it only calls for a homesteder. just ask the fisher installer if he will do it for you. it is a liability for them, but it may work out without a hitch
