    I have a 94 Chevy 2500 pickup, and would like to put a good snowplow on it. I like the V plows, but most of the manufacturers' sites do not recommend an 880 lb V plow. Instead, they recommend a 720 lb straight blade. The guys at the dealers tell me different things, depending on who I talk to. Would the V plow damage my truck and under what circumstances? I have a long gravel driveway.

    A lot of guys will tell you you can run that set up no problem. Just need to install it yourself, or find someone who will ignore the manufacturer's spec. Some timbrens, t-bar adjustment, etc will go a long way in getting you there. There's a thread going in the boss forum I think about putting a pipe edge on a v for gravel. Do some searching on the forum here - lots of threads and good advice to be found.
