    I am looking to buy a 7.5' or 8' arctic plow. Prefer 7.5'. I already have the quick link II style harness on my truck so I dont need that part. I live in Kitchener, Ontario.

    8' arctic is about 700 lbs... will work good even if you got a half ton

    Ya I got a silverado 1500 and I don't know if I can go 8'. Can you just crank up the torsion bar for the weight or do you add load bosters like timbrens or both?

    Still looking for a plow. Prefer an Arctic 7.5-8' plow with quick link II style hook up. Or something thats 7.5-8' that will fit a 2001 1500 Silverado. Thanks.
