Any ideas on which plow

    We just purchased 06 C5500 GMC dump, 330hp Duramax, Allison, 26,000 gvw.
    We have both Boss plows and Western. Both have given us good service. I am debating which plow for this truck. First, a 9' with wings, or a 10' HD. The Boss and Western 9' plows are very comparable as far as weight, trip springs, etc. But the 10 heavy weights are considerably heavier, 300 - 400 lbs heavier. I do like the Western Ultra mounts because they seem much easier to hookup even compared to the Smarthitch 2, which we have a 9' HD on a 2000 C3500HD. I did not appreciate the cheap Boss headlamps that didn't make it thru the second season of plowing and Boss would not warranty them even though the plow was less than 2 years old.
    Any thoughts on which plow?

    I think you might have better luck if you post this in the chevy/gmc section!
