    Pictures of a 7"6" 26 series on a 07 Tahoe. Same front end as suburban and 1500 pick-up.

    Needed a little slice and dice, but not too awful much.

    Yep got the same plow on my 03 1500 Dodge. Installed Jan 06. Still yet to use on snow deeper than 5/16". But it sure does a nice job leveling your gravel drive.wesport

    Looks like all you need is some snow to plow.....same problem I'm having.

    Cool dog, by the way. Reminds me of Matisse from the movie "Down & Out In Beverly Hills".

    The old style three pin mount, allowed one to retain the factory tow hooks, I can't tell from the pictures if that is the case anymore? Can you verify either way for us?:salute:

    You lose the tow hooks. I'm not sure why it was designed that way, it doesn't look like they would interfere.

    I am a big fan of the Tahoe for a plow truck..Not only are they good at it ,,but heated seats , mirrors and other niceties make them comfortable to plow with :)

    Looks real good..Hope we get snow soon !

    Hey take a side pic with the plow up..I am curious about front end drop..

    Delivered the truck to the customer already. It did drop a bit, there was no ballast and it's coil springs so no twisting the keys. Installed a suburban the day before that has the self-levelers, sweet. Didn't post pics because the black/black/lexen on black top didn't have enough contrast to show the trimming required.

    Outstanding job on the install Basher. A great looking plow on a great looking vehicle. Heck of a combination! I am sure that your customer will be very happy with it. If Tom O'Brien hasn't done so yet, I will be sure that our engineering department gets a copy of these photos.

    Hey Basher,

    Very nice, clean job :salute: . I was hoping you would post some picts. I have been very worried the new trucks would not take a plow well.

    So ...... Where are you located?????

    I've been tossing around the 2500/3500 Chevy new style and ( hold your horses ) the new crew cab Tundra ( don't laugh, the stats are a near toss up ). Still have to wait until they hit the streets though.

    My wife has a white 07 Tahoe. That thing is the sh*t. I told her i would get our sign guy on it but she was not up for having our logo all over it. Leather, navigation, 20' rims. Life is tough being a stay at home mamma!

    The liability of not running lights is incredible. Not a good thing to do here in litigation city. I think we have more lawyers per capita then anyplace else on earth.

    I like the way it is notched as well. I think Snoway or any plow mfg for that matter should supply templates on their web page for us fussy truck owners. that way all the valances could be cut perfectly ahead of the install.

    That looks good!
    Only thing it needs now is some BFG A/T's on it and it'll be ready for snow.
