    HI the truck belongs to avalancheplow!
    Thanks EYESELL for posting the pics.

    My ride is a 02 Chevy Avalanche with a Sno-Way 7.5' MT90 plow with the down pressure. I put timbrens up front to help. Any Avalanche with a plow needs them bad. In the fall I am adding a snowman tow behind angle plow. :D

    Next year I am seriously going to consider a 3/4 ton avalanche. I absolutely love them and Dont use the box of my truck vs my trailer. I'd outfit it with a new Boss V like I have, or a Blizzard since we now have a dealer! Scott

    It plows great in the snow. I only had trouble once and that was trying to push 6" of heavy wet snow up hill. :drinkup:

    The blizzard is a lot cheaper. I would pick it depending on what your doing. If you are doing a lot a driveways and have to backdrag I would go with the Sno-Way. Everything else, small commercial-large commercial not much backdragging then I would get the Blizzard. IMO

    snoway looks nice, looks like it stacks well with out the lift chain! Some people think snoways are not "real plows" but they are. I was up in Killington, VT a few weeks ago and saw tons of people with snoways would not be using them up there if they were not good, real plows!:D

    Dude your set-up is awesome. I'm interested in the same set-up for my Av 1500 Z71. But, I have a few questions. How much front bumper modifications (cut away)?. If you have pictures can you post them here?. Did you get the wireless control?. Did you put ballast in the back?. Finally if you do not mind me asking, what was the damage $$$. Thanks, LCME
