    Hi I was wondering if I will at all run into any problems with putting a 9'2" V on my 02 2500HD I will be putting timbrens on the front also. I was going to just go with a 8'2" but bigger for me is better gets the jobs done quicker. So any comments or suggestions would be awesome.

    Thanks Joey

    The difference in weight between a 8'2" and a 9'2" is 68lbs. If your truck can handle an 8'2" it should be able to handle a 9'2" xysport

    Alright so i am going to be the only one saying mabye not. I have a 9.2v on a F350 diesel so maybe thats why it feels heavy, but sometimes i wish i had a smaller plow. If your not doing any driveways i would go for it. But if its going to be driveways and some parking lots go with the 8.2 and get the wings. An 8.2 with wings will kill a 9.2 without. have the best of both worlds. Just an idea . sorry to toss this out there after you already have your mind made up or so it seems.

    You might not be able to drive around with the plow wings fully retracted but I think that's pretty common. No biggie

    And remember, a 9.2 may sound like a lot of plow...but a 9.2 is only 92" in the scoop position and 99" in the V position. If you place it in one of these two positions, the plow will fit virtually anywhere the truck will. :nod:

    Few turns on the T-bars and a set of Timbrens will take care of the dragging wing tip issues in most spots.

    If you get into commercial mowing, banks and other drive throughs might be too tight for that 9.2.

    I do 4 banks and have to do them with the 8.2 in the V, because the 9.2 won't go.

    Yes, I also have to fold my mirrors in with the trailer tow mirrors.

    Yes, a 9.2 will get big lots done a LITTLE faster, but not if you can't get all of the lot.
