    Hey guys, I am thinking about adding the poly Boss wings to my 9.2 V-XT - probably by the fall to use next winter.

    I plow about 20 driveways and 8 parking lots - 3 of the lots have a curb all the way around. The other 5 lots are fairly open.

    So I'm wondering how the 30* angle of the wings work along curbs?, and if it's not too wide driving on roads and highways? - they would add 22" width to my V plow.

    My dealer quoted me a price of $800. for the wings. I would do the install myself. Thanks for your thoughts and experiences on the Boss wings!

    You will love them and wont know how you lived without them. They are extremely tough and can be ran along curbs etc, they turn your plow almost into a pusher. Can you drive down the road with them...yeh...should you probabally not there a little wide even in V and will suprise you every now and again when they catch a little snowbank on the road and shoot snow everywhere. They are extremely easy to take on and off. Imo they are worth every penny.

    I agree. They are great. They make doing my lots so much easier. I hated the trailing off of snow when I turned and that's why I got them and it helps out with that. I try not to get to close to curbs with them on. They're designed that if you hit something hard with them the spring pin on top should release so the impact doesn't destroy the wing. I hit a big frozen ice chunk in the road when diving. I pulled over and reset it and its been fine since. I let the dealer install mine. My plow didn't have the holes drilled already. It does take up alot of room driving down the road but you just have to be careful if you decide to.

    I would agree with everyone, I installed them half way through last season on my 9~2. I cannot believe how much of a difference they make. Having an 11 foot wide plow is pretty damn cool. Just remember not to overload your truck with too much deep snow. I dont believe that they should cost 800 bucks, but thats what you gotta pay to play... Have fun and good luck

    I'd have to agree w/ what's been said so far. Aside from all that, I have a 4" lift on my truck...between the lift and the wings extending the plow further in scoop, I've found that I can stack higher and tighter than I could before I had the wings, especially w/ deep powder snow. Parking areas that were at times challenging to clean up because of tall curbs or island walls have been a breeze now because of my extended reach. Some lots where stacking was once limited partially because of boulders on the corners...now I reach over the boulder. Long isle ways...where I once favored a certain direction, I now have other options. If someone blocks the pile at the end of the isle, my blood pressure doesn't go up as much now because of my options. You won't be disappointed.

    How can a lift kit on your truck possibly allow the plow to lift higher? It still swings in the same radius and is limited my the same lift cylinder and headgear

    Everything sits higher.

    Mount still should sit at a max height of 17"
    Your truck won't stack any higher than a stock height truck with a mount in the correct height specs.

    My truck sits on a 4" lift and I plow with 34" tires. My mount has been dropped to 15.5-16" which is no different then a factory height truck. If I left my mount alone like it was a stock height truck my V wouldn't sit anywhere close to level on the ground and do a terrible job and wear edges all goofy.

    I do not believe you will find them on sale anywhere, I waited from 2011 when they 700. Till 2012 and then they were 800 to buy mine, they will only go up in price, best to locate a dealer with stock from last year.
