    just picked up a Black 2004 GMC 2500HD ext long bed and it came with a fisher HD 7ft 6in plow and thinking of trading it for a x blade does anyone happen to have some pics of black trucks with the X blade?? really would like to see a GMC or chevy with one.

    Thanks.

    Might want to ask question on build up your front end. The Xblade will be very heavy for your truck. Your truck has a 630# plow on it now. The 8ft XBlade is 790# and will be way to heavy for front end of a chevy. A yellow 9ft only weighs 745#.

    if you got the Duramax in it. Which i think you do since it has 7.6 on it. Which is heaviest that Fisher allows.

    That's just what their dealers will actually install and what fisher recommends for legal weight reasons....you can easily run an 8ft X-blade on that truck....gas or diesel

    How about some updated pics on that Back drag edge. I personally see no use for one with my Xblade

    well the truck has a level kit and some heavy duty rancho shocks up front and i was thinking of going 8ft 6in on the blade I have no worries about the truck not handling it becuase dad has the same truck but 08 and run a V plow so. And dam thanks for all the reponses I love this site.

    I'll try and get some soon, as for the backdrag blade I do only driveways so most of my work is done in reverse, it also has a teflon edge to protect uni stone. You don't see too many trucks around here without them.

    That truck will handle that fine. Everyone always acts like chevys are made of glass or something. Everyone who doesn't plow with one that is.
