    Just bought a 2005 Suburban 1500 Z71. I want to put a 8 foot plow on it. Can i? If so what brand? Having a hard time finding a listing or a dealer that will install one. I want to plow commercial so I cant put one of those LD plows on.

    Blizzard makes a 8 foot medium duty plow

    Snoway makes a 8 ft plow for that vehicle also, 26R 8 foot with hydraulically controlled end wings.

    How are those 26Rs fending this season ? Are they too light duty to be put on a 3/4 or 1 ton ?

    Yes they are designed for 1/2 ton trucks and are a little light for 3/4 ton that's why there is a 29R (8'10") and 1 tons get the revo2 (10')

    snoway looks to light for me. Can I mount an 8 foot meyer on this thing? I used to have an 8 foot on my 2000 z71 silverado way back when. Dont see why with some helpers up front that wont work

    You can bolt whatever you want on there, the manufacturer's guides are really meaningless:rolleyes:

    ok well does anyone know the PN for mounting plates for a meyer setup? MM2? Or a Fisher setup? I dont think ill be able to find push plates to mount on this off of a fisher though.

    8' is a lot of plow for the front of a 1500 Suburban.... I'd be looking at the Fisher HTS 7.5' if I were in your shoes...
