    Youll be fine, ran a 9.2 VXT on mine last year with no issues. Switched to a 8.2 with wings this year for more carrying capacity

    Thanks

    What is the weight difference from a 9'2" VXT vs a 8'2" VXT with wings?

    Stick with the 8'2". Your truck can carry the 9'2", not much more weight, but to big to get in smaller areas.

    All depends on what your doing, Im running a 8.2 regular with wings, not the xt this year, i think the 8.2 with wings is a little bit lighter than then 9.2vxt, i thight like 50lbs but dont quote me on that. The carring capacity from a 9.2 to a 8.2 with wings (10.4) is huge and i have a few lots where all the snow has to go to one spot in complex areas and the 30 degree angle on the wings enable you to relocate snow much better without it spilling out.

    Thanks for the info....

    Think I am going to go with the 8'2" and see how the truck handles it. Than maybe add wings on later.
