Snowplow prep package

I apologize if this is in the incorrect location, but it appears most of the topics regarding the 2017's take place here.

Out here in the Pacific Northwest, I haven't been able to find a 3500HD crew cab 4x4 with the snowplow prep package to compare with a non-snowplow equipped. Can anybody confirm that with the 6000 lb front axle rating and the stiffer torsion bar, if the front of the trucks are slightly higher or more level? I'm also wondering if there's much of a difference in ride quality. For the specific truck I'm looking for, I'll most likely have to order it anyways. I want the 220 amp alternator, so that partially pays for the snowplow prep package. The bummer is, you can't get the sliding rear window with that package.

There's some excellent information in there. Unfortunately they don't reference to the front ride height difference or the ride quality. That could be subjective though, I'm afraid.

Go to the new vehicle information section, under snow plow package. And reach out to NE Denali as he just took delivery of one.

Also they delete the Homelink garage door opener when you get the snow plow prep. I am looking at ordering a 3500 Denali tomorrow.

So out of curiosity what is the forward lamp wiring harness and power feed for backup and roof emergency lamp?

Know theres the button for beacon and wiring in the headliner but unsure about the rest?

Gives you a harness to run the plow lights and pump.

As for the beacon same but you would have to drill the roof to put the beacon on from what I can ascertain.
