    Any of you guys out there with a 15-16 GMC Denali with a Western-Fisher plows. Could you please post some pictures of the truck side with out the plow on. I just purchased A new truck. I want to see how it looks. Hoping you don't have to hack it up that bad. Thank you.

    I had a similar question when I purchased my 2015 last year. I know its a different model, but look through all the photos, you'll get an idea of what I found. No one on here would send me any photos of their truck so I had to request photos from the plow manufacturers. I'll tell you what- I don't mind the way my bumper looks with the receivers off now. I think there is less cutting on a HD truck because it doesn't have the lower plastic valence that is on mine.

    I was really nervous about cutting into the front of my Denali but it actually turned out okay. I completely removed the lower valance and now that the snow season is over I can take off the plow receivers and put the valance back on.

    Your truck came out good. Hate to be a pain but do you have any more pictures of the front of your truck head on ? Also the middle part were the license plate is does the plow rub up on it and is that peace in the middle flop around. Also was wondering when you out the plow on does the hook or hit any of the bumper. I have been a ford guy for a long time. Just went to a gm and I love it. Just don't want a truck for 70k that looks bad. Thank you again.

    Western probably looks better with receivers out. Fisher will always look like that

    That's what I was thinking. I might have to get a Fisher or just leave the receivers on all year.

    Why the switch from Ford. I have a 2015 Denali with a fisher mount. Looks fine not really hacked up at all.

    Still have the ford. I have been having some problems with the fuel system on the ford. I had to add a truck for work so I thought I would try a GMC. Do you have any pictures of how yours looks. Thank you.

    I just posted a new thread asking very similar question for my 16 chevy 2500 high country. I'm looking at a fisher 8.5 extremeV. I have seen a few newer chevy trucks with fisher plows and it looks like the plow hits the bumper/license plate when raised. I'm now thinking i may need to look into western. If the western wont hit the bumper and has the removable gear I like that for a cleaner look in the summer months.

    did you have to pull your license plate back under the truck at all for the plow not to hit it, or does the western not have this issue? I have found the fisher plows will hit the plate and bumper so installers have been pulling plates and plastic back under truck and fastening them there. kinda cheesy in my opinion.
