    My western dealer has no display models. So I guess I have to go by the website to pick it out.
    I want a 7.5 for my 96 GMC 1500 Z71 diesel any suggestions?
    Thanks Mike

    Hey Mike,
    What information are you looking for?
    I am picking up a new 8' Pro Plow from the dealer in the next day or two. It is going on my 2004 1500Z71 crew cab and I am installing timbrens.
    I'm doing the install myself (probably next weekend)and will be posting pics and install info.

    My dealer told me the truck is way underweight for 8 foot with wings.
    Trucks FGWAR is 3925. Spings specialist told me today that I can only get 15% more weight by adding another spring.
    My biggest problem is I want to put a blower on the other 1500 truck (2005 sierra) but it has the same FGWAR and the blower is 900 lbs. Thought you could beef up the front end for this much weight but both dealers are telling me no!
