    No problem. When I upgrade the chev another 350 this year I will be putting the current 9.2 vxt on it and possibly a 10' v on my 350 powerstroke.

    Why not the front hardly drops with a vxt. I can handle a few wheel bearings and ball joints over the productivity.

    It is either that or I'll put wings on a new vxt. That will make it wider than a ten footer.

    I'd put wings on your 9.2 it would be lighter and wider, besides the mount is different. Would you be able to drive around in a full V without the outer edges hitting?

    Well I got 5" of clearance now with the 9.2. I can always bump the wings ahead a bit.

    Well you can check my math but if you add 10" to the length of the plow that would be 5" per side sooo now you don't have any clearance. FYI a 10' V is already over width in V so if you bump it ahead you will be way over

    theres a guy on youtube that has a 9.2 v with wings plowing a parking lot. Amazing the productivity with this setup.. Id say its perfect for huge lots with a 1-4" snowfall. I could see your tranny getting hot quick though pushing all that wieght. if more than a 4" snowfall. You could just take half swipes if it is too heavy though.

    I would not worry about the trans heat. I pushed with a 11' Blizzard for a couple of years with no issues.

    I watched the video, too many trucks in that lot. Accident waiting to happen.

    my vid, and yes my brother almost backed into my truck at one time.

    i keep having to explain this but i just took that vid to show what the v can do with wings and wasnt concerned with finishing the lot asap.

    check this other vid of mine as well for better windrow and capacity shots as there was more snow on this lot:

    I definitely like your carry capacity, my 8.2 doesn't seem to carry very much. I have to go back more often to pick up the run off. I think I did better when I had my straight blade with wings.

    Take the lift off your truck and you might be alright.... or cobble up a drop bracket and take the lights off the plow and it should be ok :eek:
