    I'm looking at buying a mid to late 90's Chevy/GMC to use as a plow truck. I've found a 98 3/4 Chevy with a 166k on it and a 95 GMC 3/4 with 72k.

    I found a thread on here that will help me with what to look for as far as an HD tranmission, axles, etc., on the 95 but for the 98 did they use the same transmission as the 95. If not what code should I look for on the build sheet. Also what trouble spots should I look for on the front suspension.

    Also, will either of these trucks have any trouble handling the Blizzard 810 plow.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
