    I'm have a 2003 Silverado stepside with the 5.3. It has a 7'6" fisher rd I just put on this year. How does it handle plowing? I took the plow off a suburban I used to run, just curious how much ballast you guys are running.

    side step ? no difference

    seems about 300 lbs behind the rear wheels is popular - I use zip - no issues, just depends how much front sag you got ...
