    This winter I'll be doing my own plowing with a 1984 chevy K20 and a meyer 7.5 feet polyurethane plow, so thought I would ask a few questions.

    First, I've noticed that meyer seem to have a rather poor reputation and I was just wondering what the main issues are? Is it the EZ-mounting systems? I have an old plow with the mounting permanently bolted on to the frame, and this seems to be a nearly indestructible construction. I'm not trying to open a can of worms here, just wondering if there is something I should be aware of?

    Second, I was wondering about lifting the truck 4" on the springs and maybe a 2" body lift, in order to fit bigger tires in the summertime. In
