    I was looking for a straight blade plow and I stumbled on this boss 7'6" v plow.Problem is my truck is a 97 gmc yukon 4 door. I bought the plow anyway, installed it myself, cranked up the torsion bars 5 turns and it still sags about 2 maybe 3 inches. I did'nt put timbrens on it knowing I will sell the truck in a couple of years and get a 3/4 or 1 ton.Now, if I plowed my whole driveway it would take about an hour. The plow will never see a highway with this truck, so is there anything I should be worried about considering the plow is too heavy for the front of the truck?

    You'll be fine, especially under those circumstances. I've plowed with a few different Tahoes and 7.5' blades with no problems whatsoever, and that was commercial parking lot plowing, etc.

    although its another 170.00 for timbrens, you need to get them , you have 800lbs hanging on the front of the that vehicle. I have a 1/2 ton as well, and my truck only drops about 1/2 inch with the plow on with timbrens.

    I have a 97 4 door yukon i have a western 7.5 pro poly ultra mount set up on it you are definitely going to need to put some extra weight in the back of it i use 15 or so 50lb. bags of salt without them the steering on truck is hard to turn.when at a dead stop

    i do not have a set of timbrens on my truck due to most yukons set on the jounce rubbers with out a plow on them, i wish there was a way to raise the truck 2-3 inches with out spending a bunch of money
