    Our plow applications follow the recommendations of the truck manufacturers. In some instances, certain blades will exceed the front axle rating of the truck and they will not show up on our Plow Selector Tool. This may be due to a larger cab style or heavier engine or combination of the two. Check out this article for additional information regarding the diesel engine:

    you are not showing any blades at all for the 3500 diesel motor. i understand the weight issue, but i think your selector is either missing info or something is going on. as per gm my new truck with 6k lb front and 7050lb rear axle with the diesel should still handle 800 lb plow. on westerns configurator they list almost all the plows fit my truck and yours shows none.

    now i know that is not true but your configurtator won't help me look at what is out there.

    Thank you for the additional information on your truck and for bringing this error in our selector to our attention. Our service team will be adding your truck configuration to the selector in the next day or two. Please check back shortly for the plow applications best suited for your truck. Thank you!

    I was wondering what was going on there as I just ordered a new 2015 Sierra 3500HD DRW, crew cab long box with the plow prep. Was surprised no diesel was listed when searching plows.

    Just tried and now it works!!
