    I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 and I was wondering if I should go with the 8'2 V or stay with the 7'6 for weight issues. I plan on getting some timbrens and adding weight in the back. Also, last year I used a 7'6 Boss Trip Edge on this truck with out any ballast or Timbrens and it handled fine. Let my know what you think.

    The only blade for1500 pre 2007 is a 7'6" v blade We did a comparrison between 7'6 standard , super and trip edge all to the same truck the lighest was the standard but in comparison the 7'6 super and 7'6 v blade where within a 1/8 of an inch being the Vblade was lighter on the front end due to be set back and not hanging off the front end . the trip edge was the heaviest .I have installed several 7'6 v"s My cousin lives in mass and he bought one from me for his truck .
