    always have run 82's but just bought a dmax and know that it can handle pushing that much more snow. Question is....whats the longterm effect (front end, frame) if any with running a 9 2 on a 2500. I do all commercial so think it would be very beneficial. Thanks, Bryan

    You have to remember that the d-max weighs more than a gasser so there is already additional weight on the front axle. Just food for thought.

    Check the GVW of your front axle, then weigh just the front. Add the plow weight and see what you have.
