    Just bought a 2003 1500HD crew cab and want add a plow however chevy has a snow plow "prep" package that is NOT on the truck. Would like to know what would need to do to upgrade the front end. Had a 87 blazer with a western on it and it worked great but do not remember having to upgrade anything on it.

    Depends on the plow but you can crank the torsion bars, and add some timbrens.

    Also don't forget about the replacement cooling fan clutch, and bigger alternator. Other than that it should do fine. Friend of mine has one and once he changed the fan clutch it became a plowing machine :nod:
