    I'm putting a 71/2 ft. meyer max poly plow on my 01 chevy silverado half ton reg. cab 4.8 v8. I was wondering if I would have any problems, or if anyone with a similar setup can tell me if they ran into any problems or what I can do to avoid it?

    you are going to have problems just because it is a MEYER! j/k, but seriously- put some money away for repairs.

    After I switched from a steel blade (C-9 to CP-9) , and after trying numerous coatings to deter snow and ice from adhering when plowing with the steel blade , my opinion is that there is nothing better than a Poly blade , you will never get snow to roll off of a steel or SS blade as well as it does from a Poly, just a matter of physics.

    7.5 Poly is probably a bit much for a 1/2 ton , but it should work , it has been done many times .

    Just my .02

    I currently run a 7.5poly on my 2500hd and absolutely love it over a steel love the weight too. But my plus might be a bit much for a half ton. Only wish mine was an eight.
