    I'm looking at a 2008 Tundra with a Blizzard 7600LT on it and I were to buy it, I would sell the Blizzard and buy a Fisher. How much of the truck side wiring is the same between the Fisher and Blizzard?

    As far as I know, almost nothing. I could be wrong though.

    I would imagine if the Blizzard is one that was made after Douglas Dynamics took over then they should interchage same as Western/Fisher does.

    If you look on the website for the Blizzard plow, watch the video for the attaching the plow, the plow connectors look exactly the same. The mount however is completely different, but kinda cool, let me know how you make out, post some pics of the tundra your looking at. What size fisher are you looking to get? 8' HD?

    I looked into this Tundra some more and it's got a 4.7 and I want a 5.7. I might go look at it but, I'm not really that interested. I was hoping that all the truck side wiring would be the same and I could just take the Blizzard mount off and put Fisher push plates on. I'd like to get a Tundra and put either an 8' HD Fisher or possibly a 7.5' Boss V.

    I think blizzard is different because it doesn't use chains to lift.

    I hear ya, the 5.7L def has a huge amount of power and torque over the 4.7L or 4.6L, whatever size it is. Keep on looking, I'm sure you will find something u like. Keep us posted.

    I would also go for the very least a 7'6'' HD plow, the SD is good, but I wish I got something a little heavier. Don't forget to beef up your front end with the HD, very minimum-timbrens.

    I definitely want a 5.7. My Dad's 4.6 has good power but, I think a little more would be better. If I buy a Tundra I'm going to put Bilstien 5100's and Timbrens in it. I'm either going to get an 8' Fisher HD or a 7.5' Boss V with wings (if the price is right). I wish my Dad had gone with an HD instead of the SD. The SD is a great plow for what it is but, I think the extra weight of the HD would help a lot with scraping and the Tundra can handle it no problem.
