    i just bought an 06 silverado 1500 with a 4.8L in it. my intentions were to put a plow on it and make some money this winter. but someone told me after buying the truck that they dont make a plow to fit it because the frame rails in the front are different than if it were to have a 5.3. i had pushplates for a minute mount set up off a 2000 silverado and they would not fit my front rails. is there anyone out there that makes a plow for my truck that doesnt cost an arm and a leg or is anyone selling one that would fit? any help would be good. thanks everyone.

    Fischer shows plows available for your truck. I'm sure most others do also.

    Frames changed between 02 and 03, it doesn't anything to do with your engine. If you go to fishers site there is a different mount part number, 7168 for 03-06.
