    I know this is not the used for sale section but figured I might catch someone doing research to buy a new boss over here. I have a New 7'6" Boss V with snow deflector, new style lights ect. Truckside only. I found a great deal on a new 8'2" I couldn't pass up. This could really save someone some cash over buying from a dealer. Would like to cash out on this soon so taking highest offer over $3500.00.

    Where in Wisconsin are you located? Also, you said truckside only? Did you mean plowside only? I would assume you are going to be using the same mount and wiring for the new 8'2 V?

    I am new to plowing and snow removal, but have cruised this site a lot over the past two or three years. I do have one question for everyone. What kind of truck does Boss make the 7'6" v-plow for? Is it made for 3/4 ton or 1/2 ton trucks? I looked on the Boss website and i thought it said that they weigh 700lbs. That seems to be a little much for a 1/2 ton, but is it really big enough for a 3/4 ton truck?

    I have a 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 and would love to put a v-plow on the front, but I just think that it would be too much weight. A friend of mine has a 7'6" v-plow on a 3/4 ton Ford and he said he loves the plow, but that is doesn't clear enough snow and he is constantly driving over it. He got into plowing a few years back and bought it because it was cheaper than the 8'2". He said he would definitely go for the 8'2" if he could do it again.

    I just seems like when you are in the V or scoop position, that no matter what truck you have it on, that it just isn't wide enough. Am I thinking about this wrong?

    Your truck would be the only 1/2 ton I would ever put a plow on there all heavy! But u have torision front suspension. Crank it up. Also that why they make a smaller V for smaller trucks. Just put wings on it.

    I have been thinking about putting a 7'6 on it maybe next year. I thought that if I got a pair of good shocks up front, cranked the torsion bars, and put timbrens on, it would probably be fine. Plus, I would only have it on when I would be plowing, so it may not be that bad.

    I have snowblowing accounts this year and am really looking to branch out to plowing for next year. I love my GMC Ext Cab 1500 and I would really like to keep it and use it for plowing. At least till I have some more cash to buy a 3/4 ton Duramax.

    Do you have any idea what it would cost to get a mount, wiring harness, and controller?

    You will need at least a grand for parts plus labor.If you plan on geting a 3/4 ton duramax that plow would be fine to move to that truck next a 3/4 ton duramax cant hold much more than that 7.5V just add wings and you will have one bad azz set-up.
