    I have a 04 chevy cc short box w/ duramax. Will a wideout/ v-plow fit on this truck or just stick with the ultra it already has, Also can I at least upgrade to a pro-plus

    That truck will hold about any plow you want it too.

    Thanks for the input. I was thinking about a 8-6 Western v-plus

    They say 8' or 8-6 pro plow. I was trying for a little more production out of the truck. I've seen in some sigs that the had wideout or blizzard and was wondering if I would be able to put it on my truck

    Look at the difference in weight between the Wide Out and Pro Plus. Also the mechanics of the wings opening/shuting on the Wide Out is harder on the front end. Could upgrade and change the front suspension on your truck to avoid front end sag of the 900lb Wide Out. Would also require weight in your box to accomadate the front end weight. Also another thing to think about. The company I purchased my Western would not install the Wide Out on my truck due to Ministry Of Transportation rules on over loaded front end limit and Western would not offer a warranty....
