    Does anybody know how much weight is allowable on an avalanche? I got an 8' pro sitting at home with no truck. I suppose its like using a half ton but I wanna make sure before I make the deal. Almost impossible to find a good used 3/4 HD.

    If its a 2500 Avalanche it should be fine. Half ton Avalanche is same as a Tahoe or 1/2 ton Suburban. They use coil spring rear suspension and are usually only rated for an LD plow.
