    As long as you have clearance for the salt to spread, it's doable.

    Probably have to drop the back blade 6" above the ground in order to allow the salt to clear.

    I can see it.

    I am going to try to catch him one of these days and take a pic. This is the first I have seen them with setup so it must be new this year.

    I have a 16' ebling and can run a 2yd salt Dogg in the same truck. Spinner drops right down through back blade.

    Old news, I had the original back in '04.

    No dropping the plow we spread underneath.

    I sold the truck a month ago.

    Pretty sure I posted pics before my enforced vacay, but I'll try to remember tomorrow to repost.

    That is awesome! Does it cover the backblade with salt a whole lot?

    I would assume that would be a corrosion nightmare.... Invest in fluid film by the drum...... Would be a wicked awesome all around truck though... Get rid of the v-blade and put on a speed wing though... Thumbs Up
