    No action pics. Wouldnt be much anyways all I have on my own is a few driveways I in town. I'm home basically on winter break now because of a d*mn kidney stone. If it wasnt for hydrocodone I would be a very miserable guy right now though lol.
    8'6" western unimount with 700or so lbs of sand tubes along the tailgate.
    And shut up, My dad found / bought a 1980's textron 2 stage snowblower and he wanted me to leave the driveway so he could use his blower lol

    Nice rig but what's up with all you dodge guys extending your mirrors up like that when not towing anything? always makes me think of a puffer fish blowing himself up to look bigger.

    :realmad::realmad: lol, I knew someone would ask, read the last line of my original post!
    I only have them like this because I was towing trailers all summer / fall and since they're manual I dont feel like going through the hassle of changing them. Plus I've gotten used to them like this.

    You're obviously never driven a truck that had that style mirror. The visibility is increased at least 2x when folded up compared to the down position. If they didn't look so funny and increase drag so much, I'd run around with them up all the time too. It's a much sleeker look when you fold them down.



    You didn't take any pictures actually plowing? For all we know, you just backed out and drove back up your driveway. :p

    lol It was a solo effort today. I should have a few action pics up by tonight just so you guys will shut up lol.

    I like the look of them upright like this, and I get terrible mpg anyway so I could give a **** about drag lol.

    I guess I'll never know...... lol

    No offense dude- but you're home because of a kidney stone? I've passed 2 stones already- both of them while I was away at college- with no meds. They're painful, but not bad enough to have me miss classes!

    Other than that- looks good!

    Ive never passed one before and I'm not afraid of pain, but holy sh*t idk how you could do it w/o meds Matt! And it's not like I came home just b/c of the stones though lol, I was already home for the weekend and had doctors appts because it wasn't passing on its own and all that fun stuff.
