    Mansfield VT here, near Stowe. I have an 02 1500 long bed regular cab, but sometimes trying to manuever around the house and barn I wish I'd gone for the shortbed!

    You got the back drag blade, for back dragging. I've seen them on a few.

    Why arn't they listed on Fisher's website though?

    They aren't a Fisher accessory. They are generally fabbed and installed locally.

    Back drag blade

    Harley Hauler, Sure be more than glad to, I can tell you when I built mine I used a factory fisher cutting edge, 2 pieces of angle iron welded it to the cutting edge. I welded 2 pieces of iron to the plow. last drill a hole in the plate iron on the plow and the same on the angle iron. Just bolt the two together and theres your back drag. I will get you all the dimensions and pics tomorrow when its light out.
    I gota say its worth its weight in gold!

    Very nice pics.

    Thanks,
    I had a set of timbrens last season but they made my truck ride like a backhoe so I took em out. I just turned the t-bars up 3 turns. What a nicer ride!

    Looks like a great truck. The back blade would be great for driveways. Is it hinged somehow so it will trip if you hit something or is it welded in place? My truck has not looked that clean since September :cry:
