New plow truck (2000 k3500 454)

Recommended Posts

Needed some work... all new brake lines. Front wheel bearing, rear axle seals and flanges. Rear drums were shot, so new drums and shoes and shoe kit. Front rotors are glazed.

Will be doing the front brakes myself, but with the big snow coming, the shop is doing the rest. They run their own custom lines and I had them do the rear lines on my 04 and they did a fantastic job.

Gotta get the plow back on tonight!

Where in WI are you? are you getting the 12"+?

Near marshfield, showing 4-8 with 10" possible.


Going to have to rig up a light bar on the plow tonight too. I cleaned all the contacts to try and get the lights working.


Only the running lights work on the plow. They don't signal though. Neither plow headlight comes on. The switch kills the truck headlights though, which it should I believe.

good luck with the wiring. I'm no electrician.

But I would recommend you try to test the truck-side wiring to make sure everything is good on that end first. do you know how long that truck sat since it aws used for plowing last?


I actually have to take mine in to a dealer to fix mine, I have a headlight problem when i plug the plow in too.

Priced out front end parts, right around $500. Includes new UCA with balljoints, LCA bushings, LCA ball joint, inner and outter tie rods, drag link, pitman, and idler.


Going to baby er through the winter and then look at the front end next year. Took it to work today in the 4" of slushy heavy snow. Roads were crap. This thing is a tank... didn't even move in the slush. Even with the sloppy steering.

So after talking to them again, I missheard. Just needs front brakes and driver's side wheel bearing. I'll do both front wheel bearings, rotors, and pads.


I think I may buy new wheel studs, and wheel hub mounting bolts also.


Tried to get the oxygen sensor off, but no luck. I dont have a torch that can heat it up enough. I'll probably have the shop pop it off.
