    Im sorry about that. Com. went down coudn't finish. What I would like to say is a lot of people tend to put too big a plow on their truck and performance suffers and the truck gets abused and ends in premature death.

    amen brother! I tried putting a 8.2' Boss V-plow on my truck.....airbags in the coils and truck will hold it fine right??? with the plow up, the truck didn't sag much, till on the way to my FIRST plow job EVER the the drivers side upper ball joint snapped, followed by the lower ball joint, followed by a crapload of cursing....The Next day I sold that V-Plow for 1500 bucks and got a used sno-way...along with taking my truck to curts auto service for a 1600 dollar repair job. Respect your trucks GVCW rating!
