    Does anyone have a Suburban 2500 set up with a plow? I am looking to get a 2001-2003 model and would like to put an 8' Boss Superduty on it. Wanted to know if there are any problems I will run into.

    Brian, what kind of mileage are you getting with the 8.1L?.....Did you have to use Timbrens or crank up the torsion bars?

    I put SuspensionMaxx adjustable keys on it. Runs and looks awesome.

    1998 Suburban 2500

    Hello, I have a 1998 suburban 2500 that is set up w/ meyer 7 1/2 plow and I makes a great plow truck. Only problem is keeping rear windows clean in a driving snow storm but I usually crank up the rear heat and that solves the problem. I run dual 770 CCA Delco batteries & 145A Alternator.
  8. I had a 1999 2500 Suburban with an 8 foot Fisher MM1. That thing plowed like a dream. As stated earlier, keeping the glass clear in the rear is a problem, but if you have rear heat, you're all set. You might get a few looks because you'll be driving the "family truckster" for plowing, but you'll get over it.
