Am I Really Ready for Winter?

    Greetings! I became the proud owner of a Blizzard 760 LT today.... complete with a '97 Suburban attached! :D From what I've read here about the 760, I think I got a real good deal on the rig ($4400). The seller put the plow on in 2005, & it looks in very good shape. So I'm really happy with the plow! (What a relief to know I've got that lined up before snow starts flying again!) BUT! ....It's actually the SUBURBAN I'm getting a little nervous about! It runs very very smooth, drives well, seems very solid. But I know from experience, 3 years' of plowing can be pretty rough on a vehicle. (Had a 7.5' Western on a F150, 1994 - 02; just about demonished the truck in that time.) So I'd be really happy to hear from anybody else on here who's had experience with a Blizzard 760 on an 11 or 12 year old Suburban! Is the plow really too heavy for the vehicle? If so, is there a kit available to beef up the front end? It's a 1500, auto. I know it's a bit off-topic, but still related: Are there any possible (or inevitable) problems/concerns I should be aware of? Watch for? Tips? Suggestions? Can I pretty much count on this rig getting me through the next several plowing seasons?

    I can't judge the suburban without seeing it. I can tell you I have a 99 tahoe with a plow on it it does just fine. If it is a 1500 suburban than I would recomend a set of timbrens for the front end, And maybe a tbar crank on the front. besides that you should be fine. Any other questions I would be glad to help.
