    Chevy Silverado 2500HD extended cab short box will be an excellent truck for snowplowing. It is a very popular setup for snowplowing. While I do own '02 2500HD, I don't have a plow on it right now, but from what I have heard from other owners, they are happy with it. I am sure it would be harder to manuever in tight driveways than with a smaller truck but it got the power to plow a mountain of snow. :D Now with the warranty, I think it is good. 3years/36,000miles. I don't think it is necessary for you to get a diesel truck. Alot of owners have 6.0L gas with 4 speed automatic transmission and it have plenty of power for plowing. Plus, if you put a diesel on your truck, your front end are limited to plow size. With my 6.0L gas, I can put plow as big as 9.5' Fisher V plow. But I only need a 8' plow and it will be easier on the front end.
