    How about trying a BLIZZARD 760LT on that vehicle??? I would choose a plow that has a huge dealer support. That should help make your decision. A product is as good as the dealer supporting it.

    Just the 2 pennies. :)

    I thought Avalancheplow would have jumped in here by now but I can speak for him. A couple buddies of mine with an 01 or 02 Avalanche 1500 use a 7.5 foot Snoway with the lexan blade. Big weight savings from even the light duty metal blades. The down pressure is pretty cool too, it's not like floating the blade down, they actually have a piston to hold it down, very functional. Search Avalancheplow and you will see some pics of it.

    They have the Timbrens on the front end to replace the stock bumpstops and it definitely helps reduce the saggy front end. Good luck.

    In my opinion I would go with either a sno-way or blizzard. Since I have one I have looked into this more than other guys that just state their favorite brand. My 02 Av plows great. I went with the sno-way to keep it light and for the down pressure. No matter what you plow the down pressure will help. Blizzard was my second choice because its fairly light and has a nice cutting angle, and last its steel. If you have any questions PM me. I can also get you pics.
