adding a snow plow....

I just got given a complete snow plow package.

What needs to be done to the truck itself if anything ?

And

Is there anything needing to be done to the 6.5 diesel to prepare it for plowing snow ?

7-1/2ft or 8ft I'm guessing.

I haven't gotten it yet my old man is dropping it Off at some point here soon.
But it came off the same body style GM truck.

I would look to see what kinda of options where avalibe for that year.. Plow package(and what it consists of) alot of times a new fan clutch is needed from lack of air flow to radiator, some times the front end has stronger springs to keep the sag to a min, possibly a front sway bar to keep it in a line. Good tranny cooler is a must..

Its a 7.5ft western plow with a Meyer iszomatic pump lift.

Good plow ok lift.

The controls are 2 toggle switches.

1 for left n right.

1 for up and down.

Typical Meyer !

Oh and the Rack is a permanent mount plow comes off but lift n rack are there for the duration...

oh well

Its a freebie !

Hope to get it soon...

Snows a coming !
