    Does anyone have a 9'2" Boss v on a 2500 duramax ? do you think with timbrens it will be OK ? Are the 04 Duramax engines holding up?

    Thanks Steve

    have an 8.2 on mine haven't used it yet but considering it doesn't have plow prep it seems to hold it well! I don't think the 9.2 weighs that much more.

    Timbrens are a small price to pay ($150) for reducing the wear and tear on your front end... I've had them on several trucks and wouldn't think of hanging a plow without them.

    Better call your dealer and ask first if they even make them for that truck. I called the Boss dealer yesterday about a 9'6" V-plow for my Cummins and he told me that boss does not make one to fit a Dodge with the Cummins.

    I have a 9' 2" boss vee on my 03 gmc duramax extended cab with timbrens, The truck handles the plow no problem. If you check the boss web site it even recommends the 9' 2" vee for that truck, good luck.

    How do you like your Duramax ? should I just get a 6.0 Gasser?

    i do not have a duramax but i havent heard anything bad about it. all i can say is go diesel. youll never have a problem with it heating up. youll get close to double the fuel mileage when plowing and pulling and itll run till the frame rots from under it and pulls the fuel rails out. i have a diesel and i will never buy a gasser again.

    Get the dmax alli combo, much better than the 6 liter and 4L80E, it's worth the money. Runs strong , quiet and the mileage is great.
