    Hello Everyone,

    Just purchased new truck and now looking for a snow plow, any suggestions from people that have similar truck experience please share. Here is what I got and what I would like:

    2015 HD Duramax with snow prep package

    would like:
    1. Western Wide out: Concerned with weight
    2. Western V plow: again issue with axle weight

    Snow Dogg Wide-out

    Please help.

    Get what you need to do your job effectively.

    You might have to install yourself, at some dealers will not put a large plow on an IFS truck.

    It will be fine. You will go threw front end parts faster the heavier plow you put on, but any plow on an IFS truck is going to wear out IFS parts.

    My son has a 2015 duramax denali crew cab and we put a blizzard 8611 on it. It handles it great. We did put about 1000LBs in the back for counter wieght.

    Stay away from the Snowdogg XP. If you want a scoop plow go ahead and get the Wideout. More versatility.
