Boss V 9'2" Too big for Chevy 2500 classic?

    I just purchased a used Boss V 9'2". I wasn't sure if it was too big for my truck but the guy needed cash and sold it cheap! I had been shopping for a V blade for a while and could'nt pass it up. I have a 99 Chevy C2500 extended cab with a 7.4l currently with a boss super duty 7'6". I run a back blade as well. Im just wondering if its too much or if I do some mods if it will handle it. The torsion bars are already cranked on the truck and I have not tried to mount the new plow. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    C2500?? That's 2 wheel drive. K2500 is 4 wheel drive. Best way to upgrade front suspension is to swap out for XG code torsion bars (thick and heavy) that can handle the weight of that 9.2' V-Plow. Without plow, the ride might be somewhat stiff depends on the weight of the truck. To learn more about torsion bars, go to website "GM Torsion Bar 401" http://www.gmfullsize.com/tech/torsion401.html there's plenty of information on all kinds of torsion bars and parts number included for left and right side.

    LOL @ Irishman

    I wouldn't sweat it. Although if you want an 8'2 instead, and yours is nice.........my buddie will probably trade his 8'2 poly if you come down here.

    Any V-plow overall is going to be heavier than what you're currently running. The truck should handle the plow just fine. I looked at a plow earlier this season for my '99 K2500 (7.4 also!) and it was a Boss 9'2" Poly V and he had it on a '99 K2500 and the truck seemed to carry it just fine. If you think it sags too much, you can always add Timbrens to the front.

    I have a 1998 with a 9'2" Boss. It has been on there from day 1. It is most likely over weight but it pushes a lot of snow. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I've run a 9'2" on a 93" K2500, with the heavy 6.5 diesel in it and I also run the same plow on my Dodge 3/4 gasser and they handle the plow very well.
