    Here's My 2008 F-350 6.4L Diesel. I got the truck summer time. I am a fisher guy even enter the fisher plow contest with my older truck you can see the video at (iplow.net) the video title is Bad To The Bone. Anyway So i traded my old truck little Red for Big Red. So looking at the fisher plows for the new truck, I wanted to get a 9 foot stainless, but I looked at the western plows, fishers brother. I saw a 9 foot western that had more options then the fisher like the back drag edge that i got and the detachable side wings that i got. So i made the switch, plus it matches the truck. For the lights I got 3 LEDs for the grill. when i did them i had the grill out so i decided to have it painted. Now for the mirrors What a pain in the ass had to take out the whole unit and completely take it apart! The first one took two hours. The second one was going too perfect, and 10 minutes in I broke the mirror :angry: Any way finished that in a half hour. I put stainless steel running boards on, flood lights left and right, reverse lights, tool box light, mounted a back up camera and topped it off with Sirius radio. Got to have plowing tunes. Well here are the pics enjoy. Future plans is to add 2 more coal chutes another tool box driver side, and chrome simulators for the rims.

    7 mpg is about right....Mass-Highway got some new 450's & all they get is 6.5-7mpg if they dont idle them for hours on end

    Nice truck. Now all you need is to letter it up real nice (magnetics are cheesy). A stainless steel X-Blade would have looked bad azz on that truck.

    Nice truck but great choice of a channel on Sirius. How do you like the stilletto? I have only had the sportsters.
