    i have been quoted anywhere from $5250 - $6800 for a 8611 pro, it'll be going on a c5500 4x4 4dr littledump so i can handle the weight if the freakin duramaxipad will push it,

    Um yeah it will.
    You are spending 50k plus on a truck and plow and are worried about it pushing some snow.
    I sure as hell don't spend 50k and question if it will do the job...

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    yeah, my c4500 Duramax can barely get over 75 in the fast lane loaded with equipment in the bed and towing a 6800 lb mini excavator on a 10k trailer, in the hammer lane going up a 3 mile 8% hill passing everything on the road.
    It doesnt have a plow but I doubt that the wimpy little 350 horsepower motor could push snow.

    detroit dan do you think you need a edge chip:rolleyes: lol, by the way my other truck is a twin turbo dodge, on it's fourth 750hp south bend clutch, by the way it has a total of 24k miles on it, it is a 2002, dont tell me bout passin any body in the fast lane, by the way my mini-ex is a kobelco sk35sr series 2, on a 14klb hilsborro, and i can tell a hell of a difference in the horsepower in the 2 motors.
    but i guess i was aking if any body has had any advice on a mod chip like the edge "juice" or something else
