    How well does the Boss DXT back drag? Had a '97 Boss Power V That didn't back drag that well.. Hoping the new DXT back drags a lot better?!
  2. The DXT back drags great with its heavy weight and standard Smart Locks on the wings. I back drag areas where chained plows would have daylight under them down to the pavement in one pull. The DXT is as big step forward as the Power V was back in it's introduction.

    Isn't there a back drag kit if needed? Not sure if its available on the DXT or not. I know you can get them on flat tops and VXT

    My dealer told me there was no backdrag available for the dxt when I picked mine up on Saturday. Hopefully with the weight it'll scrape down decent.

    With the added weight of the trip edge and hardware ,and the standard double acting cylinders. The DXT does backdrag quite well, I'm sure you'll be pleased.
