    I've got a 95 k1500 and am thinking of getting a plow for the winter. I found one on ebay that seems to be a good deal but not sure if its to much plow for my truck. It's a western 7.5' unimount pro. Is this too heavy, or would I be ok with it. Maby add some timbrens? My truck does have a 3" body lift (not suspension).

    You should have no problem with that plow, just make sure you have the correct mount and wiring harness,,,, having to buy them from a dealer can really jack the price up...
     
  3. go to fisherplows.com and go through the ematch program, it will tell you what is available for your truck.

    Your 1500 should be fine...I would suggest Timbrens...they sure helped my front end handle my 7'6" Boss Poly...dramatic difference on my setup w/o Timbrens. :eek:

    You're truck will take just about any 7.5 ft plow out there, as long as you keep the weight down

    Did you instal your Timbrens yourself? If so how hard of a job is it to do?

    It only took me about an hour to install my Timbrens. It took longer for me to get the old bump stops out then it did to get the new ones in...Rob
