New truck, old plow?

    Good morning! I'm trading in my 2006 Ram 1500 for a GMC Sierra 2500. I have a Boss plow with a 7'6" straight blade. I know I'll probably have to get a new sub-frame, but I also want to get a bigger blade. Is this advisable? Are the hydraulics able to handle the greater load?

    Thanks for any help!

    Best off selling the old one off and buying new.

    Hydros would be fine, but it would be easier to just sell the 7'6'' and find a V or something

    Thank you both for the replies. Yeah, it would be easier to buy a new one, but more expensive too :)
