• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

I noticed that chev regular cab 1/2 tons are available with snowplow provisions but the extended cabs are not, why is this? Is the snow plow specific front suspension required or is it OK to use an extended cab with regular suspension and an aftermarket suspension helper such as firestones air springs? Thanks
It has to do with GVW ( gross vehicle weight)
All the truck mfr. don't want you to plow with
1/2 ton (except Gm reg cab 1/2)........
I found this out this year when i wanted a 1/2
ex cab.....Mr dealer (several) told me no
warranty if u plow with 1/2 excab.........
Thats why I had to go with 3/4 chevy this time.
Oh well ...the 3/4 didn't cost much more anyway.

Never needed front spring helpers on any of
my 1/2 plow rigs. Of course i am not hauling
around a 9 ft V plow either only a 7 1/2......
Check out those Timbren load busters. I have
read here and elsewhere they work ok..................
