760LT onto 3/4 ton

    I called my dealer about putting my 760LT onto my 2006 Chevy 2500 and they said that there was no possible way. I read a post on the forum that said it can be done with a shim kit. My dealer is useless, Blizzard hasnt returned my email, and I cant find a number for them. Any help would be great.

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    Anything can be done.Man has walked on the moon,been to the oceans depths. split the atom and invented the internet so the masses can access good porn. No blizzard dealer will do it because the plow is not designed to be pushed by a heavy weight truck, too much truck for the plow. Yeah i know you ' just want to plow your own driveway'. i've never heard that one before. The plow will break and you will spread the word that blizzard is crap.or the shop is crap. There is a big difference between an hd and an Lt plow.that is why blizzard makes the attatchments narrower on the Lt so you cant hook it up to a truck it doesnt belong on.As you know, if a half decent business doesnt want to do a job or take your money it is probably because the job is a looser and some aspect of it will come back to haunt them. I have all kinds of customers asking me why I cant to do dumb stuff to their trucks every day, my answer is always the same, take it to the kids down the road, he has a welder, and he is way smarter than me,good luck im sure you'll be fine.next! Just giving you a little insight from the other side of the service desk.

    Amen Damien!! These guys don't realize us dealers have rules and federal crash test laws to abide by. As a dealer if we modify that plow to work, and you (the end user) gets in an accident and hurts or kills someone that's our A*& that is going to get their dealership revoked or sued, not that us dealers don't wan't to help you. Our hands are tied on certain things you guys don't understand. Have one of your customer's run over a pedestrian and kill him, and when your being interigated by the Police Accident reconstruction officer as to your install, truck GVW, front axle ratings, ect, I'd like to see what you think. Adsk me how I know:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I believe you sharpcut, after 25 years of trouble free buisiness i got dragged into a fatal accident case on a truck we fixed a coolant leak on a year before. the brakes were adjusted backwards days before the accident by the operators employees. things are so litigious out there and the bloodsuckers know the insurer will just cave and pay something to try and avoid costlier legal battles. We dont need to get close to someone who may sink our boat.
