    Very nice truck congrats. My uncle just bought a 2011 GMC 2500HD 6.0. It's replacing his 2003 Dodge 2500 5.7 HEMI.

    That Duramax is going to kill that plow fast, sell it and get something with a little more beef.

    I agrea, that 7.5' Meyer is to small and light for a 2500HD. You should put atleast an 8' plow on it. If it was me, I would put an 8' Boss trip edge or an 8' Fisher HD or Xblade on it.

    Duramax/Allison is the best combo ever!

    I have the exact same truck except its a GMC.

    Its got its pros and cons.

    2yrs of owning its been fairly reliable (119,000kms now on it).

    8.5ft v blade feels too heavy for the truck however the engine/tranny push it no problem.

    Gotta say its my fav colour...even whens its dirty you can't really tell!
