    ESI trucks is a sponser of this website, and not too far from you in Virginia. They have listed some very attractive pricing in the past. You can see posts here from Jim or Noble with their contact info.

    I have seen install prices vary from $250 to $450. The advantage of doing it yourself is that you will have some familiarity with the unit. The disadvantage is that if you do something incorrectly, it could be very expensive.

    Installation instructions from Boss are very easy to follow, and I highly recommend you do the install yourself as it can save up to $500, and like 2COR517 said you gain great familiarity of the plow.

    I see your in NC, only a few hours from us I would think. We have done many installs for guys that drove up from NC.
    We charge 400 for install....if you order ahead(no tax) your looking at 5090.00 installed and out the door on the 8.2 steel VXT

    I would recommend saving money (between 500-700 dollars) and installing yourself. Like everybody says' it isn't that difficult and gets you familiar with it. I took one off- modified a broken push-beam support and installed on my truck- wired and done- in 6 hours by myself. Good luck buddy!
