    Thats what I'm driving and it's the work truck package with the snow plow prep package. I need a plow for light plowng in Virginia. All of it will be residential streets/driveways. A few questions:

    1. I will have some gravel streets/driveways .. can I keep the blade raised enough to scrape the snow off without pushing gravel?

    2. How much wear and tear does plowing cause? I won't be doing it much, but this is my daily driving truck so I dont' want to beat it to hell.

    3. How much would a small affordable setup cost me?


    PS: Sorry I posted this in here when it's in the general area as well .. just found the Chevy forum!

    Wear and tear is a per person issue rather than a snow plowing issue. Remember: #1 you are driving your own vehicle. #2 it is not a bulldozer or a tank.
