    I run mine with a 2" leveling kit and the front end barely moves when I lift my 9.2 VXT.

    You shouldn't have a problem with a minimal suspension enhancement. Timbrens work well to great, depends on who you ask.

    I'm planning on a 8.5 or 9.5 V for my 03 2500 Hemi and I'm just gonna put some weight in the back to level things. Probably a minimum 600 lbs, we shall see. If Fisher says the front will handle it..........the front will handle it. They are obviously playing it on the safe side with e-match and that says any plow is okay for the 2500 Quad/short box Hemi. I would imagine it's the same deal with the Boss. I think the Boss may weigh a little less?

    Here is my 2003 2500 Hemi QC ... 8.5 EZ-Vee... NO weight in the bed ( yet ... 300lbs to be added soon)

    This is my second season in this setup .. no complaints what so ever. Front end drops 1.5" when lifting the blade. Looking to add the 2" leveling kit to it here shortly.
