    I have a 96 chevy 1500 ext cab, long box. done some homework and have narrowed it down to the hiniker 7 1/2" conventional full trip, or the snowdogg vmd75 (their 1/2 ton v-plow). v plow is 100lbs heavier and $400 more. what would you go with and why?

    I would go with the v plow. I have never ran either of the brands you have listed, I am just speaking from a v-plow vs. straight plow opinion. 100lbs is not much more weight and you will love the v plow. IMO a v plow is the all around best plow for plowing a variety of lots. It offers everything a straight blade does, but with the option to scoop for long pushes in commercial lots, or the option to put it in v and bust through drifts on big residential. In the end it is up to you, but I think most will agree that a v-plow is the best plow for doing a variety of accounts. Now if you were talking strictly commercial, then maybe a scoop plow such as a Western Wideout or Blizzard Power Plow would be best, but that is a whole new topic.

    Looks good. Looks like you might want to crank the t bars a little and add timbrens. Looks as though the blade hangs a little low. Good luck with your purchase.

    I had timbrens installed with the plow, and the pictures from the shop were taken as he was getting his impact to crank in the torsion bolts. we screwed them in about an inch and made a huge diifference. unhooked the plow this morning and drove the truck, wow , What a difference, felt higher up from the adjustment and a bit bumpier.
