    Hello folks. I am looking at a silverado 2500 as a plow truck for this year.
    Looking for a little bit of input. Truck has had a plow on it since 95, never been used for commercial plowing. is fairly clean on the underside. It has a newer tranny with an upgraded torque converter. The truck just looks so puny and light duty compared to what I have now

    1995 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with 4 wheel drive, a 6.5 turbo diesel engine, and an automatic transmission. Other features include a 4.10 gear ratio, positraction rear end,
    truck has 7.5' Boss V-Plow that was installed in 95
