    Anyone running a snowplow on a Chevy Avalanche?

    I'm adding a new truck this winter. Here in Louisville plowing is obviously secondary to mowing but I would still like to have the option.

    This will be my personal vehicle and I'm turning my 2500HD over to my crew leader, so I really want to get a vehicle I want and that I can use for family vacations, pulling boat, etc.

    The truck will be used primarily for pulling fertilizer sprayer and landscape trailer.

    And by the way, I have a used rear mount plow I bought a few years ago I guess I can always mount if nothing else works.

    Sno-Way has applications for the Avalanche.

    I see by your signature that you already own one of our plows. We appreciate your business.

    We put one on a 2004 (i believe) Avalanche that a customer had on a 2001 chevy 2500. The Avalanche was a 2500 series with a 8.1 Litre engine. It was a 7.5 western Uni-mount. Used the 6 relay wiwing harness. Evem put a Trynex 6000 salt spreader in the back. Now that was a tight fit. JOHN

    Just bought a 04 Avalanche 2500 i intend on mounting my 8' Western on. The truck has the cladding, so there will be some cutting :cry: but should work well! I am looking forward to trying it this year. I dont think it will do the job my Duramax did, but should get the job done!

    ill post pictures in a week or two once i have it mounted.

    Lots of Avalanches here in the northeast with Fishers. Even the 1500 series handles the 7.5 nicely

    Same chassis as a 1/2 ton or am I wrong? There are a few new Escalades around here with plows so I would assume there are atleast a few options. Call the local dealer, find out.

    I would put that 7.5 on the Avalanche and do something bigger on your HD

    Escalades with plows? I remember a few years back someone posting pics of Escalades with sno-ways in Colorado. What kinda plows on the Caddy's near you?

    As for Avalanche's with plows, ive seen a few with Westerns and Fishers around home during the winter, seem to work pretty well.

    Western said the same thing for my truck too, so take what the quick match says with a grain of salt.
