Any one have any input into putting a 8.6 Fisher EZV onto a
mid 80's Chevy K10 with 6' bed.

By the way it has a 4 inch lift kit on it.


I was just toying with the idea :help:

Jeff if it was anyone else asking I would say no. But given that the same axel is used in 3/4 ton trucks, and with proper rear ballast higher spring rate front springs are already in place, I would think this could be done. I dont know if with the lift, if you will be able to get the hitch mount points low enough.

I agree with Dino. The truck can handle it, the lift kit will be the only obstacle. What size tires are you running? Maybe you can put smaller ones on for the winter to get the hitch lower?

Chuck,

The truck currently has 35's on it. I fully intended to drop down to either 33's or even 31's

No way would I try to plow with 35 inch tires.

Have plowed with 31's and 33's on a truck before.

Looking at the fisher spec sheet, looks like the EZV is only 150 lbs heavier then the RD

Truck also has dual shocks in the front.
I may have to ballast the rear to keep it level.
