    Wondering what upgrades I will need, what I'm thinking so far is tibrens, dual battery and charge upgrade, but will my stock fan clutch be ok and how about my oil and tranny temps. I wasn't sure if because it was the allison it maybe had an extra tranny cooler already? I know air flow will be better with the blizzard 810 than a v blade because it can ride lower to the ground than the v's. Lemme know what you think? Thanks alot.

    I had a buddy with a 2500hd with the 6.0 that got hot with a 9.5 fisher on it and his didn't have the snow plow prep. Thats why I was concerned. Thanks for your imput!!!
