    1999 Chevy 2500 WT (8 Lug) 8600 GVWR, Plow prep pkg, towing pkg, 5.7L V8, Auto tranny, 4.10 axle ratio, 8' bed, regular cab.
    Attached is a 8' Fisher HD, Minute Mount 1. Plow is a 1999 or 2000. Has a custom back drag blade on it, came with it when I got the plow last season.

    This setup replaces my Dad's 1978 Dodge 150 with a 6.5' Meyer Plow (still in use on the farm).

    Here are some pics from today...

    Yes, she will. I didnt need it last winter, and its really heavy, adds more weight that I dont need.

    Thanks guys for the comments so far. I have seen some guys on here with a very similar truck to mine. I think that color was very popular back in the late 90's.
    I'm only one guy with one truck and one plow, just breaking into the snowplowing biz. Trying not to be a low-baller, but I am in it for some beer money!!! I do have a full-time job that snowplowing will have to compete with, but I'm only looking to get a small route.

    good to hear my exhaust is so rusted right now its being held up with bailing wire lol. and the mufflers were plugged so i put in a piece of straight pipe but i think i am going to have to quiet it down a bit before deer hunting lol. i better stop before we hijack this thread too bad.
