    most trucks lose traction before they run out of power

    I had this exact same truck,... 1991 Chevy 1500 WT with the 4.3 V6 & 5-speed,... it had 287,000 miles on it when I sold it, and never had one major issue with it (engine, tranny, T-case, diffs). I replaced the clutch on it twice, and all U-joints, but it ran/started perfectly with no oil useage w/Amsoil in everything it's entire life. And that was after at least 8 years of heavy commercial plowing (My plowing season here is 5-6 months a year) with an 8' SnoWay. I wouldn't choose to do it again, but at the time it was all I had. ALWAYS plow in Low range with ½-tons, stay ahead on your maintainence, and drive it like Grandma would, and it will work for you. Power on the 4.3 was never an issue, and I plowed snow dumps with that truck (chained up) that came half-way up the doors. Timbrens & a few cranks on the T-bars, and you're set to go,.. good luck!
