    Just wanted your opionions. I have a 2500 hd with a 8.1 liter, I am looking at a western wideout but the dealer said the plow is to heavy for my truck and wouldnt put it on. Do any of you guys have a similiar set up out there. any thoughts would be appreciated.

    You'll be fine. There are guys running around here with 10' westerns on a 2500.

    I'm running a 8'6" ultramount MVP on a 01 2500HD with the 8.1,shortbed xcab currently with no problems. Turned up the torsion bars a little,running 285's,no timbrens. The MVP should be comparable to the wideout in weight.:nod:

    you will have extra front end sag with the blade up, but nothing will break, and it will plow just great - I don't drive around much with the blade up - will you ?

    Check my signature... It's not a problem with the hardware, it's a problem with the liability and fear of lawyers. Accept the responsibility for yourself and go for it, or play it safe and stay home while other people are out making money.
