    I have a western 8ft pro and would like to know if I can swap out the blade to a lighter model or make it lighter any other way . I have it on my 1\2 ton gmc it works fine without a lot of frontend dive I installed tembins and cranked my torsion bars up about 2 1\2 in. but I would like to extend the life of my frontend . if theres anyone who would like to trade me for a lighter unimount western that would be ideal because I am on a limited budget.
    Thanks
    Ray

    You could change out the cutting edge to rubber and get a few lbs off the front end.Just a thought
