    I am looking for some advice about using a 07 GMC CC long bed for plowing mostly parking lots but a few driveways. I was wondering about performance and how big of a blade to put on.

    I've got a 9'2" on my 99 Dodge Dually. Id say from my research and from wiser men than I, a 9'2" is the way to go for a dually. It'll work for driveways, but it's a tad bit overkill. Ever consider a rear plow?

    I had a 8'6" Western MVP Plus and the Western wings. I liked this set up better over the 9'6" because I could take the wings off for long drives which took some of the weight off the front end.

    We have a 9.5 western v on the exact same truck you're describing. I'd imagine its a little too much truck for constant driveway work-(we only do ours). But handles the plow and lots very well. See my profile pics.

    do you have to do anything to the front suspension or is it ok with stock suspension I was thinking about extendable plows

    I would put the Timbrens in, turn up the torsion bars and either change some of the front end parts now or put in heavy duty parts as they wear out. Tierods, pitman and idler braces and maybe better shocks. You might want to weld in the gussets as well.

    That's way too big for driveways.
