    I'm running Timbrens in the front, but was wondering if there were any other suggestions for plow prep? What extra lights do you feel are necessary? I like the racks on Mossman381 and TJS' trucks- any others worth noting? I will probably build my own. Any other "must haves" for a plow truck? Thanks.

    Nice truck. I really like the color. I would put some extra backup lights on. It really helps if you are plowing at night. Post some pics of your backrack when you get it built :nod:

    are backup lights better fitted into the bumper or on top of a rack? i'm leaning towards on the bumper right now.

    The bumper is probably the best place for extra light behind you. I have lights in my bumper and on my rack. You can't go wrong with extra light.

    having a chrome ag bumper i may have to rethink where i put them- maybe the space between the tailgate and the bumper. nothing is there now but i could fit a piece in there that can fit two lights.

    my rear end (of the truck) seems much higher than my front- does anyone know what kind of springs i should be looking for to even things out?

    I would just run Timbrens up front. Thats what i did and it doesn't squat AT ALL with a 8 1/2 foot Western. That is all she needs! Good luck!

    sorry, i should mention that i have timbrens up front already. and the squat is without the plow on. just its normal set up. with the torsion bars will i need to do an alignment?
