    I have an MD68 on my '02 ZR2. It required no modifications (maybe drilling a hole or two) and the wiring was straight forward. I had to add timbrens and tweak the torsion bars to keep the front end from sagging. ZR2s have low payloads and very soft springs. They were never intended for plowing. The dealer I bought it from would not install it because of the application but would honor the warranty if something went wrong.

    I hook it up before the first snow fall and leave it until the spring. I use it to plow 2 good sized driveways and have had it for just over 2 years. So far, I've been very satisfied with its performance. My warranty just ran out so I'm hoping there won't be any problems.

    If you do a search, there are a couple of threads with pictures. Be sure to post some pics regardless of what brand you choose. Always interested in seeing the ZR2's.

    I plow with a blazer zr2 and I love it short it turns on a dime. 4.3 has a lot of power for its size. A cheep mod was to take off the front.
    bump stops and put on late 90's rear from a full size. And a bigger alternator 105amp was not big enough. Ill post picks of his truck when he get's a plow he is a good kid
