    I have a ultra mount 7'6 pro plow right now, and im pretty sure next year i'm going to move up to a new 8'6 V plow but i just cant seem to find any info on what the weight difference is, i'm going to be adding air bags to my truck on the rear and just really trying to figure out if i should also add them to the front

    so ya might wanna consider air suspension for the front it'll help out the springs in the long run

    What do you need to know? Its a 6-6 sport utility blade. Dont know what the 61300 is, doesnt come up in a parts list. the mount is for a 99 and later 1500 GM.

    If your thinking of putting that blade on the 1500 its way to narrow.

    no,no, I have an 04 Jeep Wrangler and am considering a plow 4 it. I think the western and meyer are lightest but western is a little better set up. I also have a chance 4 a fisher but i think its a lot heavier. any ideas?

    Any 3 will be fine. I prefere the western or fisher. Jeeps are great for plowing drives and small lots, might have to do a little suspension work.
