    Can you enlarge a Fisher Plow? It is currently and 7'6" and I would like to make it bigger to fit a dual wheel truck.

    Anything is possible but your 7.5 has only 3 trip springs not 4 like a 8' HD. It is really not as strong, So if you do go easy. My cousin bent a 7.5 like a bow with his 2500 Duramax.

    Yeah, YAZ nailed the issue. You can add metal to the moldboard, but you will need to extend the trip edge and add springs so the extra snow loading doesn't overload the existing ones. Better off buying a bigger one instead IMHO.
    It's not the same as a Full trip style to modify the legnth because of the trip mechanism.
