    hey guys ive got a 94 gmc 1500 ext cab short bed. i run a 7.5 minute mount 1 and recently purchased a speedcaster 2 spreader. Im curious if i should be concerned about snapping the truck in half. ive seen a pic or 2 of half tons with plows and spreaders with the trucks split in half. im just wondering if the frames are weak or was it because they were rotted. any input would be greatly appreciated

    That's kinda hard to answer without seeing the truck. I would timbren all the way around or airbag it.

    Front as well..i said in another thread that, if i didnt crank up the torsion bars i would see alot more front end issues. The front end is more important than the rear IMO
