I have a Fisher 71/2 ft plow on my 1500. I put the F**D keys in to hold the front up a little better. Been almost 4 years and she still drives like a champ, with and without the plow.

I've got an 8' Poly on mine with no problems to date. This is the third season with it. The only thing I did was add Timbrens to the front and turned up the T bars a little. The timbrens are a must IMO.

Yep got a Meyers ST-7.5 installed from the dealer. Turned the T-Bars a few turns and all is great. I DO NOT drive all around with the plow on though, I plow my driveway and immediately take it off since it goes on and off in < 5 minutes. If you take notice Meyers makes a special lightweight 7.5' plow for Dodge And Ford but GM allows the heavier plow to be installed on the 1500. I am not sure, does Dodge or Ford even have a plow prep package available for 1/2 tons? Most around here will swear you shouldn't plow with a 1500, that you will destroy your truck. :D If you use common sense and don't get nuts you should be fine. Good Luck.
Someone once told me how to fix stuff. All you need is duct tape and WD40. If it moves and it shouldn't use the duct tape. If it should move and doesn't use the WD40.

I have a Meyer Max ST-7.5 on my 1500. Cranked the T-bars up a little and put Timbrens on it. Plows and drives great!

Everyone says not to plow with a 1500. F that! I have been plowing with an 86 S10 with a 7 ft Fisher plow for 5 years without any problems. Last Saturday I bolted on a Meyer C8.5 plow(8 1/2 foot commercial) to my 04 Silverado 1500.
Meyer doesn't make a mount to fit my truck for a plow that big, so I fabricated one. I work at a machine shop so I modified the 2500 series mount to fit my 1500 series truck and installed the new set up last Saturday. I can't wait to plow with it!! BTW, to all the people who think I shouldn't plow with my truck, when you make the payment on it then you can tell me what to do with it! When I want your opinion, i'll give it to you!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! :sigh: :thumbs:
2004 Silverado 4X4 5.3 RCLB, K&N Intake, Speedliner, Remote Start, Nerf Bars, Tonneau, Ventvisors, Bug Shield and I'm not done yet....Actually, I am done. I just bought a ZX-12R Ninja. Hard to go much faster than that!!!
