    You need 8ft to clear the wheel wells. So get at least an 8'

    Like the other 2 guys said 8' is what you need on your truck. You should put a Boss on it IMO.

    The Down Pressure available with the Snoway is a great benefit for back dragging, EIS is far superior to the DD headlight system, and the wireless is a nice feature.

    Whatever you chose you should to go with an 8 foot blade.

    Do you have the 4200# FGAWR? Be careful you don't void the warranty which might happen. Anything bigger than a 7'6" Fisher would void it.

    The only reason I said to get a Boss is becouse I don't know how many Fisher dealers are near Darien IL. If there is a Fisher dealer near Darien IL he should get a Fisher IMO.

    Lucky me when I got the truck the dealer told me I had the snow plow package on it and it dose not have it on the truck all he wanted was to make a sale calling GM and making a complaint about the dealer yes I should of looked but the I did not see the window sticker
    What ever happened about telling the truth should have gotten a ford
    It was Bill Jacobs Chevy in Joliet the truck listed for $40045

    There is no Blizzard plow for your truck.

    You could go with a Meyer C-8.0'

    No worries, Meyer allows a C-8 WOW that's 800 and some odd pounds.
