    I have a 93 k3500 with the 6.5 turbo diesel. I am running the 810 blizzard on it. I put timbrens on the front and also cranked up the torsion bars a couple turns. Your engine is lighter than the diesel,so you should not have to much trouble. I am looking for a ford 350 regular cab diesel to hang my 9.2 boss on.The chevy's are great but the front ends just cannot compare to ford for strength and durability.Good luck and happy plowing :waving:

    I am going to guess 5500lbs. My 94 with the diesel weighted 6000lbs. It was the best truck I have ever owned, still sorry that I sold it.
