Sell the 7'6 blade and get a 8' or 8'6. A 7'6 is a complete waste on a 3/4 ton and when angled and turning the truck you will run over the snow

yes and no. this one is a better truck overall. The diesel did have more balls than this one for sure, and I've always had a soft spot for those OBS Chevys.

theres a lot of narrow and really tight driveways around here. Most people around here go with a 7'6" for doing driveways. Its a good plow, we will see how it works out this winter.

We have plent of 1 car wide drives here and I use a 8'6 and 8' with no problems. Its a good plow, but after using it you will realize on your own its too small for that truck.

Good luck

it came with the truck. For the price it was better than buying the truck and plow separately. We'll see how it does this year. maybe upgrade to a V-plow for next year or the year after who knows?
