    I have heard nothing but good things about them. One of the guy's i work with has one and he is very hard on things and hasn't had any problems out of his.

    I'll let the users give feedback on the plow (obviously I'm a little biased), but I will say that on a 2000 1500 you'll want to boost the front end (Timbrens, whatever).

    Those GM's are soft, and the ~2000 ones seem worse than most.

    ok thanks yeah i'm goin to the dealer here in mass today and i am going to find all this out. thanks a lot to everyone. it all has helped. my buddy was also lookin at plows and he was going to get a fisher for 5000 and when i mentioned snowdogg he is very interested. it seems like all people from homeowners to pros chose this plow. my buddy says it seems just as rugged as the top name brands and just cheaper. thanks to all. i will update and let you kno if i am going to get it.

    hahahah also just a hint they guy told me that i dont need the timbrenes put in the truck...they suggested put 60% of the weight of the plow int he back of the truck nd it will level out....he said it has worked in the past...just a tip

    If you buy from Equipment Specialists here on this site, you can get the same plow from them for 2720.00. Add another 300 for the install, and you'd be done for just over 3K. You could save yourself about 600.00 if you buy from them.

    worth the money easy to install
    some guys keep constant weight in the back
    but i start out with a bunch of salt and end with very little weight other than spreader in back.
    timbrens keep me from only having two tires on road if i slam on brakes. the old bumpers are soft

    can someone please post a pic of a chevy truck without the plow on it?

    I want to see what the install looks like in the offseason

    I have a 2005 chevy 1500 silverado ext cab 6.5' bed

    anyone w/the 1500 & the MD75 - did you go with timbrens or some other leveling product or just stay stock w/ballast in the bed?

    thanks in advance guys!!!!
