    actually i got stuck with the dump over weekend storm, i had been having amp problems when i use the plow and the stuck stalled while doing a lot of saturday, i had to wait for the pick to come over and give me a jump.
    i think with all the added amperage(sp?) the plow needs the alternator was doing the job.i had the alt. tested and it wasnt putting out its full amp rating, which is only 100amp. so i replaced it and it seems to be ok now.
    i wanted to upgrade to a bigger alt but i was told by my parts supplier they didnt make one that fits.
    o well
    hopefully i wont have to install a dual battery.

    dump has a 5.7l w/hd trans 3sp woth overdrive and a plow prep package
    pick up has a 6.0l and i believe it has the same trans as the dump, i just did trans service to them and they use the same trans kit.

    Both of your trucks have the 4L80-E auto, which is a very good unit. I had one in my old company truck and never had any problems out of it at all. Thanks for the info.
