    Hey guys i am in the market for a plow truck, I have an 09 I am scoping out right now. The only thing is, its at a GM certified used dealership. its not listed as having a plow prep kit. How do I find out for sure if it does have one installed? If it doesn't, is it a big deal?

    This is the truck....what do y'all think?

    Looks like a nice truck. Call and ask them they can tell from the vin. Otherwise maybe the rpo codes

    There is a problem with the throttle body sensor on some 09 (mine went bad), just an FYI. low prep isnt much anymore, mine doesnt have it, but has the off road package (which has better supension & skid plates than the plow prep). Only thing I dont have is the bigger alternator, but it has not been an issue. The aux. cooling the used to come with the plow prep & towing packages from my understanding is now just standard equipment. Look to see what the options contain to double check. I was able to get GM to cover everything as if it had plow prep, its off waranty (3/36 mo.) now so it doesn't matter.

    I can't seem to find the VIN anywhere. I can get you whatever info you need on it with the last 8 digits of the VIN.
