    I had a 95 2dr Tahoe that was my favorite truck ever. Back around 2001 wife Killed it running into an OLD OLD man who cut her off. Anyway, I never had a blade on it, SO my question is, I have an oppurtunity to pick up a clean one, with about 100K miles on it. The guy has a snow-way plow on it, but will keep that. He cycles through trucks every season, I have no idea why, but anyway. I was a Lexus tech for many years and am familiar with these trucks, to those who plow with them, how are they with a blade, does it do anything out of the ordinary to the front end? I know these trucks are big, but pretty light duty. Thanks Guys.

    I have a 94 K1500 with a 7.5 meyer blade since 2002. Timbrens and a crank on the torsion bars. Weak spot is the 4l60 transmission. I bought an aluminum deep sump tranny pan from Summit, tranny cooler is series with the factory cooler and a temp gauge. Been running synethic trans fluid since with an anual change. Had the truck since 1995 with 28K, today it has over 140K with the original transmission. Allow the trk to completely stop before selecting gears. Keep an extra front diff actuator on hand, about $100 available from most auto parts stores. Just replaced the factory one last year and another this year.
    Also keep the heavy snow build up away from the cowl. The wipers will take a crap if you dont. A spare wiper circuit board would be a good idea as well.
