    I have a 1995 chevy 1500 Extended cab, short box. I have the opportunity to buy a Boss
    7' 6'' v plow with everything for $2500. Would my truck handle this fine and is this a good deal?
    Thanks

    There's several threads around here with guys running 7.6 vee's on a 1500 so get accustom to using the search feature and enjoy the reading. :drinkup:

    $2500 being a fair price for the plow would depend on it's condition, age, and whether it includes the needed truck side components to fit your specific truck.

    my local school district has one on a 2005. it sags like crazy but I imagine with timbrens and a few cranks of the t bars it should work more than ok

    I have a 7 6V on my 2000 1/2 ton. Put timbrens on and crancked the t bars like 2 turns. 3 years now and its good. The bearing in my front end went out(well where making noise) so I am rebuilding that. Other then that no broblems.

    It's a horrible idea. You should instead give me the info about the blade and how to contact the seller. :waving:
