    Here are some pics of the latest project. I took the rear plow off of our totaled truck, and the front plow off our 1999 Dodge we sold this fall.

    Take a look.

    Hey Jon, What if any mods did you do to the suspension to make it sit that high?? Looks good though. Would love to see it pushin/pullin snow some time.

    Once again

    That's a sweet ride:salute: looks to handle the weight very well. Should make a great maneuverable truck. Maybe not as much as the toolcat but at least it can go down the road faster. Does the controller operate both plows? Doesn't seem like there are enough switches for all the wings.

    That should be manuverable for residentials and is that swing wing tilted down on the right side

    Plated the frame, added a couple leafs to the rear, 3/4 ton torsion bars and Timbrens in the front.

    Thank You.ussmileyflag

    The controller does all plow functions, front and rear. There are plenty of switches.:dizzy:

    A little tweaked from the accident, will straighten in spring.wesport

    What size Boss? Are you putting all new style lights on your older style Boss plows? If so, is it an easy/and or expensive switch?

    Other then the big goofy looking light on the plow, the truck looks great Jon.

    5.3 gas.


    Totaled everything, plow, mount, and truck. I have more pics but do not wish to post. That accident was not the highlight of my season. End of story.:salute:

    8' 2" Poly vee. I have been wasting my money on the worthless new Boss lights. They are very easy to switch, they will set you back $850 for the kit.

    Thanks Bill.
