    i know this probably sounds stupid but i just bought a plow for my truck and i dont know if it is too big for it. i have a 95 gmc 1500 ext cab short bed with a 350ci and i bought a 7 1/2 foot power angle plow with an e47. what do you guys think is it too big or no

    Is this one of those trick questions like when the wife asks "do these pants make my butt look big?" Anywho, I had a 93 Chevy Stepside 350 cu w/8' Fisher and worked like a mule.

    I dont think your could put anything smaller than 7 1/2' on a full size truck. When angled it's about the same width. Weight should be okay, My meyers really don't seem very heavy.

    you should do more than fine. i had a chevy 1500 with an 8' meyer blade and i got a new 1500 chevy that i put a 7.5 poly blade and they both plowed snow with no problem. i only wish it was higher.

    Just make sure the measurment from the ground to the carriage is the right height. If not you will go trough cutting edges fast, by having the blade at a different angle.

    ya i had that problem with my old plow so i took a western uni mount truck mount and welded my meyer mount to the bottom of it to make up for the 6" or so of difference and then reinforced the heck out of it. it may sound rigged but i im young and dont have alot of money so i made it work.
