    Fisher HT, Boss Sport Duty, Fisher SD, Western HTS, Western Midweight. What's the type of plowing you will be doing? Cab config? Engine?

    I have a few parking lots i push, and i do city road work when we get enough to be called out. It an extended cab with the 5.3 Do you think the Boss 8'2 is too heavy? I know it wouldnt be good on the front end though, i've seen quite a few half tons around here with them but i dont know how bad it has messed them up.

    Way way way too heavy. Most recommended plows are about 400-500 lbs.
