    I am seeing that all I can put on this is a 7'6'' plow. Do you guys agree or are they just very conservative?

    I wanted to put a V-plow on it but I can't find anything that would work for it. I am getting a great price on the truck and really want to buy it, but if I can't put the plow on it I want I guess I don't see the point.

    By Westerns standards,thats all they recommend. Of course a larger plow will fit but we only install what Western recommends. Its a LAW SUIT thing. Good luck. PT.

    My 97 GM K2500 has a FAWR of 4250. It's an extended cab. Curb weight is 3500 dry. I put an 8.5XV on it. Two very busy seasons. So far, so good.
