    Is it possible (using all of my current plow components) to transfer my 2005 Fisher 8' Straight blade plow from my current truck (in sig) to a 2009 Chevy 2500HD Duramax/Allison RC/LB?

    If your current push plates are more than about a year or so old you'll need the updated push plates for the head gear to clear the bumper on the '09 as well as the correct light harness to coincide with the '09's HB3/H11 headlights.

    Around $600 depending on where you shop.

    Okay- thanks.

    B&B- what's your opinion of the new 6 speed GM trans (behind the 6.0L)?

    So far you'll hear no complaints from me as far as durability goes. They've been proving to be a very robust trans so far in the few years they've been used in the trucks. But you do have to get used to the way they work as they're no 4L80/85E in their shifting strategy. They do more gear hunting than what your probably used to with your current truck but once you get used to it it's nothing out of the ordinary. And for those times when you want full shifting control there's always the manual shifting mode. Something never available on the 80E/85E's.
