    I am trying to decide if i want to put a 8.2 or a 9.2 vxt boss plow on a 01 2500 HD chevy with a snow plow prep package ordered out of Michigan. Some guys are telling me that the 9-2 is to much weight for the truck. If anyone has a 2500 HD with a 9-2 vxt let me know how it fits.

    I believe that is too large for your truck.

    A friend has the 9.2 0n his. Just need to kick the wings out a little so they don't scrape the ground.

    Not that you asked me, but reviews on the wideout have been mixed. The XLS has faired much better. Better yet how about a 810 Blizzard.

    Regular cab, or extended? Regular cab, I think you would be fine. I'm not real familiar with Boss. What's the weight?

    Boss v 8.2

    I have a Boss V 8.2 on my 04 chevy 2500 hd and I will tell you that a 9.2 vxt is to much for the trucks suspension. The 8.2 v is the right application for this truck.

    And I will say I have the 9.2 VXT with a set of timbrens up front. Reg cab truck. Handles the plow great, I wouldn't want it any bigger nor smaller. If you put the 8.2 regular v on and add wings its actually heavier than mine. JMO but I like my set up.

    Funny seeing I run a 9.2 with wings and it handles it fine.

    truthfully I love the wideout. I havent had any trouble with it riding up over snow as others have.

    you truck has no suspension modifications and the wings dont drag at all? thats pretty good, usually you need to crank the torsion bars up or add a leveling hit.
    also what is your front GVWR? for some reason 4800 lbs comes to mind.

    I have two 2500HD's they do fine with 9'2" just tighten up the torsion bars.

    my new f350 holds the plow good but when its folded back the blade is about 4 inches off the ground on the corners. So I would think a 2500 wouldnt hold it that well you might have to beef up the front suspension

    Timbrens, 4 turns and a salter in the back for ballast.
    The wings actually never hit, but the curb guards on the edges do if I take a corner at an unreasonable speed.

    Not sure on the GVWR and don't really care.

    I have no problems...9'2" xt on CC short bed diesel. Have to fold wings out slightly when driving and all is good! 1' extra makes a difference when plowing! IMO

    as long as you dont have a diesel or crew cab you will be fine on the front end. otherwise you are overloading it by almost 1000 lbs.

    I have a 08 3500 chassis and Boss doesnt recomend putting either of V plows on the truck. In other words they wont warrenty the plow if something breaks.
