    I have purchased a 1999 1500 ext cab, z71, 4x4. I am looking for a good plow set up for this truck. I am not loyal to any brand, just looking for suggestions /pro's and cons.

    The biggest thing I wanted to have when I bought mine was something that mounted FAST. That's why I got a Curtis. They all push snow the same and they all eventually break down, just gotta take care of it. I can have mine on my truck ready to go in about 25 seconds.

    my suggestion would be to buy one with a dealer that is in your area

    ^^^i concur. Cuz when it's snowing and you need a part or something fixed ASAP, you don't want to be driving far. Everybody wants to be plowed out 2 weeks ago :rolleyes:

    I personally like Fisher on a chevy. Seems to be the best for it. I have tried several. As far as a dealer close that is nice BUT also check the area autoparts stores. Not the chain type, ie autozone Pepboys etc but the regular ones like Robbins Napa etc. See what they carry for plow parts like hoses pistons solenoids etc.as they are usually cheaper and easier for quick parts. Then make your decision. Just my 2 cents worth. I speak from experiance though.lol
