    I bet a 10' Western but that is just a stab in the dark.

    Truck looks great, should work well.

    That's a 6500 and no it's not 4x4. 10ft is the max you can put on anything and be legal, without permits.

    They are both 4500's, 2wd and have 9' westerns proplus. They are plowing machines! It does help to keep some salt in the back for weight.

    In Michigan its 8.5' max. The 9' western angled just works but depending on who pulls you over, is if u get a ticket

    k5500 is wicked strong k meaning 4x4 we hardly ever even put it in 4x4. same laws here no over 8.5' with out permit. permit is about $100 what a joke just revenue generation for state. we went with blizz 8611 to keep legal plus easier to drive. 1 complaint with truck is wiring has beeen to gm 10 times in 2 yrs for wiring issues.hope its fixed rite before warrenty up.

    Tare wt was about 13,500# and 25,900 is the GVW.
    It has a Allison auto and a cat diesel. Its a real nice truck. I put 5 tons of salt in it and it drives like a car. It is a little loud and bouncy empty!
