    I have a 98 chevy k1500 heavy half, non locking rear end with the 5.7 motor. Unsure if the truck has the factory plowing prep option. What do i need to properly set the truck up for plowing? It has a 105 amp alternator and a spot for a 2nd battery. What type of blade do you recommend? Steel or Poly? ! would be plowing 1 driveway that is about 120ft long that is 2 cars wide with a 2 1/2 car turn around, another driveway that U shaped, 2cars wide with a very large parking area in the center, total lenght if straightend is about 600ft. Both driveways are fairly flat and open. The truck and plow might be used for some commercial subbing of parking lots at apt. complexes. Any info would be much appreciated.
