    i did have a 7'6" LD on the 1500, but the wiring and mount (after some mods) will be going on my dads 07 Classic Duramax. Thank you for the complements on the new truck

    to and from work (9miles each way) i get about 12 but thats hatrodding it. on the highway @ 75 i got something like 17, that was also with a quad in the back going up the PA turnpike through the tunnels. Hopefully you purchase one because they are a pretty awesome truck with the exhaust brake and such

    Nice looking truck. Sounds like you got a pretty good deal on it. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of it with the plow on.

    Got the mount and wiring installed (gigantic PITA wiring in headlights) but looks pretty good all said and done.
    very minimal cutting
