    we finally got some snow here in town, about 4.5" at my house. that i'm very happy about.

    the bad news is the truck isnt runnign right, i think i got some bad gas or water in the gas i gotta figure that one out. so i was only able to do 2 drives before it was running so bad i limped home.

    but heres some pics anyhow of the snow and such, hopfully some actual plowing pics once shes 100% again.

    You should take that 91 to that chevy dealer where you shot those pics and trade it in on a new one!

    chevy dealer? thats my work, we do flat beds, plows..ect

    trade it in? why the hell would i trade it in? its a perfectly good truck with 65k miles, new paint, bunch of upgrades. i use it for hauling trash in the summer and plowing in the winter..and if i was to trade on anything which i wouldnt...it would be on a real truck. a ford, thanks!

    we got a storm in tonight, was supposed to be 1-3" but turned into 6" pretty quick.

    so far this season i've had a few kinks to work out, first it was a loose plug wire. then tonight in the middle of a driveway the plow solenoid died on me..leaving me scratching my head wtf was i gonna do at midnight on the day before thanksgiving. so i put my thinking cap on and grabed a starter solenoid off one of my parts trucks and bam i was back in action!! finished up the drive and then did my own before going to bed.

    so heres some pics of the progression of the night.

    i just ran about 10 miles round trip w/my excursion and this is what the back looked like haha

    it was coming down pretty good, kinda hard to tell in the pics tho

    got home and started up the truck and the other car/trucks because they would have to be moved.

    the LED's are some ebay specials i got in '07..i have been pleasently surprised by them..they are pretty bright and work well. for $100 they were well worth it IMO.

    yeah the misfire was a loose plug wire, it was barly on there. i checked them all and did some other maint at the same time to hopfully insure no other issues with the truck this season.

    yes the work lights make all the differance!
