Sierra Denali... Good Idea?

    I'm new to this forum and am trying to decide whether or not to buy a plow. I have a 2002 GMC Sierra Denali AWD (w/ Quadrasteer). After searching around I haven't found much information about plowing with them. I only plan to plow my driveway (300' paved) here in Maine. We get quite a bit of snow each winter and plowing with my 400cc Kawasaki Prairie just isn't fun anymore. I plan to keep the truck for at least 5 more years.

    Does anyone have any recommendations? It looks like the Blizzard 7600 LT and the Fisher 7 1/2 SD/LD could fit with some cutting of the bumper (which I am open to).

    Do you think this is a good idea?

    If you have a Sno-Way dealer in your area, you may want to look into the 22 or 26 series with down pressure. Much lighter, but VERY durable.

    The only thing I would say about a denali is that they are all wheel drive and do not have four wheel drive. My truck has auto four wheel drive and sometimes I can plow in and sometimes I can't. Just today I had to switch to four wheel drive to get through some snow (not plowing). Other than that I see no differences between a denali and a regular sierra.
