    I picked up a 97 Tahoe from a friend, its in good shape and im currently putting a new trans in it. I'm looking to add a plow to it because i live on a dead end and get hammered with the village plows. At the end of a snow storm, i have a 8-10' mound at the entrance to my long driveway. I don't plan on using it for commercial applications, so it would be light duty. Should i go with a light duty plow like Meyer? Western? Used? Would i have to add airbags for the front suspension? Thanks!!!

    What dealers are in your area? Might be able to get a nice 7.6" used

    Your truck does not offer much in the aftermarket front suspension. Might look at timbrens.

    You may want to wait on the release of the new Boss HTX plow. The specs on their website says its between 450-500 pounds. A nice used plow would be fine too, it just depends on your budget.

    The biggest thing I would say is make sure you have dealer product support. There is nothing worse than when something goes wrong you have no one to turn to for help.
