    Can I mount a (Boss) stright standard duty plow on a 2007 Chevy Suburban 2500 (3/4) ton truck. I will only plow my driveway and drop the plow at home.

    Yes, and it will hold the weight fine. I'd go with a 7'6" to save on cash, weight, and wear and tear. It would hold an 8' fine too.

    what size driveway and any curves and is this an extended cab or 8' bed? When I got my new Fisher 8' HD for my 2002 Durmax with the extended cab and a 8' bed, the 8' was recomended by the installer because a 7' 6" would run over snow in curves before it could plow it. I also got some Timbren spring assists to help with the front end weight, diesels add allot of front end weight.

    A suburban is the same lenght as a standard cab long bed. He dosen't need to worry about the diesel weight penalty chevy hasn't put a diesel in a suburban in a long time. since your planning on leaveing the plow at home I just throw acouple sand bags in the far back and plow away.
