    Well, finished my one ton today. :redbounce
    Just needs signs on the side, and maybe strobes at the corners.

    It's been two years in the making. Started out in life as a Wyoming BLM rig 2 1/2 years ago. after I bought it buy before I picked it up, they backed into it at the BLM lot and mangled the front. I converted it from a 2 headlight sealed beam front to a 4 HL composite front. Ordered a diesel bumper and put lights in the holes, bought a shell for it to cover the tank (it's a lawn sprayer all summer) put some serious tires, replaced broken talilights, and put a blizzard 810 on.

    Today I drilled even more holes in the bed to route the MaCl hoses , this way I can mount and close the tailgate, and put the airfoil on the plow. It hasn't had a tailgate on it since I bought it.

    Can't find a pic of the old front end, but I'll post a couple in progress pictures.

    dumb question

    dumb question but are you planning on spraying some de-icing agent or is the spray portion just something thats on year round? Nice job by the way.

    yes, this is my fourth winter using Mag Chloride. I use the boom in the winter only. I use four elcetric pumps to move it, one for each 4 foot section of boom, they are just behind the tailgate in a plastic container.
