    Hi guys,

    I've been plowing my business/residence for 9 years now with a 1/2 ton Chevy and a 7'6" Blizzard. Time to trade up! I'm getting a 2014 2500HD next week and planning on putting a Boss 8' steel super duty on it. Will I regret not going 8'6"??? I only plow for myself.

    Thanks
    Chris
