    Plowman it is a K2500. I wanted a Western V but I already have a Boss Straight RT3 on an 06 silverado. That truck and the 98 share the same headlight harness I bought a mount for a 98 RT3 and I am switching the straight over to the 98 K2500 and putting the Boss V on the newer truck.

    Took me about 2ish hours to get it fully assembled and ready to go. Now i just have to wire the truck up tomorrow. Oh.. and do a full install on the other truck.. stupid santa.

    however I think there was about 1200.00 in installation to put it on my truck. I'll save that money to buy xmas presents and support the Chinese economy.

    I would rather take an butt woopin than put the Snowex pivot mount on. I am not looking forward to that part. Burn up 17 drill bits, drill 37 holes in your truck to just have it not latch correctly anyways. :)

    Jim I think he means the old pre-2000 k2500.I wouldn't put a V on that 98. Nowhere near enough motor to handle a V'd plow with a bunch of snow.

    I have a Boss V on my 98 and it is fine. That old 350 is quite a motor.

    I completely disagree. I have, and have plowed with vortech 350 powered 3/4 ton chevy's with 8 1/2 foot v-blades for years. These trucks do just fine. Haven't ever ran out of power. I generally run out of traction before running out of motor. In my humble opinion these generation chevy trucks are the best plow trucks you can get when you factor in cost of maintenance. They have been around a long time, where built pretty much the same for an extended period of time which makes parts cheap and easy to come by. Plus they are relatively simple to work on. Plow on Plowman4life plow on!

    Dont tell Alaska Boss that when he is pushing a 9.2 v so much he wears it out in 3 years. Especially with that lil small block gasser in that 92 2500. wesport
    Maye the 2' dumps they frequently get are easier on the truck :D
