Anyone run rear blades WITH a spreader, also?

    Just wondering if anyone on here runs and/or has some pics of a rear blade hooked up with a tailgate spreader on, as well. Does this work, as long as the blade is lowered a bit for the salt spray to clear? Thanks.

    I use to plow with a truck that had both. That truck is now mine, but he kept the rear plow.

    Mount the spreader in the bed. He had a hitch mount so we bought a receiver and bolted it to a 2x8 and bolted the whole unit to the bed of the truck. The rear plow was a Daniels. Small, simple and does a great job.
