    no way, youd be crazy, the truck drags on the ground with a 7'6 as it is, just get some wings and youll be at 9ft. they work awesome, got myself and pair and love em.

    Is the current blade shot or do you just need more capacity? have you checked into wings for the current blade? In most cases they will gain you 8 -12 inches on each side

    Not only will you destroy a 1500 with the extra weight of the plow driving around the extra snow you will be pushing will dig the grave for it.

    Get a 1 ton or HD 2500 w/beefed up front end if you want to run a 9 footer.
