    Ran 1500's for years without any problem. I've always been primarily residential, but I don't think commercial will make much difference for the truck. You'll be pushing less snow with a 7.5', but it will make for another plow truck in the fleet. Good luck!

    I put a Boss 7.5 on my 05' GMC Crew 1500 it handles it fine just cranked the torsion bolts up 3 turns each and put 8 sand tubes in the back for ballast.
