    Wow does is that pic distorted or something. I've never seen a truck sag that much.:eek: Timbrens will help you but make sure you take that plow of as soon as possible after everystorm.:nod: Looks good though:waving:

    Timbrens won't help that much on that vehicle, they aren't really designed for plows and especailly Blizzards, it looks as though his plow frame will scrape on the concrete.

    Ya know I'm surprised the guy that sold the thing would'nt advise him better, hopefully he's not just out to make a buck, and at least suggested some work to the supension to support the plow.

    Just my .02 worth.

    Tell me this is a joke, please? There is no way you can plow with that thing.

    You might want to put your kids in the back seat for ballast. :)
    You can plow with that no problem, crank up your torsion bars some and drivah. I've thought about putting a plow on my wifes H2 if anyone made a mount for it.

    The Way You Guys Talk About Timbrens--they Will Fix Anything. That Tahoe Is Very Very Low And Plowing With That Set Up Would Kill The Front End. After All It Is A 1/2 Ton. Im not Saying Timbrens Are Not Good, But Are They Really That Good?

    you could always block the suspension with 2x4's lol. might be a rough ride though.

    I didn't think you could get plow prep on a Tahoe. Am I right? If not, does a plow installation void your warranty? Just wondering.

    nice rig man but it would crank the T bars up some and i would still put some tubes of sand in the back for ballast. What made you choose a blizzard?

    Emstaxi - A few things:

    What's wrong with your front bumper?
    Crank you T-bars and add Timbrens or you will have some issues.
    Add Ballast.

    Other than that nice set up and I wish you lots of snow, and no twisting frame sections. :rolleyes:

    Great looking rig. I put timbrens on my Tacoma; what a difference. I don't scrape anywhere anymore.

    Wow ya I definetly recommend timbrens. Wow that's almost bottoming out, if not already. They don't make em like they used to. My lil s10 blazer with a meyer 7 foot plow doesn't squat that much, doesn't squat very noticeably, with no timbrens or torsion bars twist.

    I think he might know he needs some sort of 'help' in his front end by now...

    I think the Tahoe torsion bars are probably softer than the pickup trucks of similar 'class' I would definately suggest cranking those torsionbars up as far as you can so it sits evenly side to side, and installing some Timbrens. That and a couple rubbermaids with three or four sand tubes in them and you should be ready. I'd try to get as much weight back in the back as you can, maybe 8 80# bags at least, 640# should help out a ton.
