    Get the boss rubber one not the cheap rubber or it will flop on you. The polly one will break.

    Go with the heavy duty rubber. I have the rubber on both my trucks Western and Boss. I agree about the polly breaking. More so in extreme cold. Chevy HD may not of had his break,yet, but I have known many guys that have. Keep the rubber clean and apply a good coat of Armor All to it in summer and it will last for life of plow.

    Go with the rubber, on my Curtis the rubber would flop around going down the road. On my new Boss with the rubber it stays put, and you can't break it like the poly.

    Good Luck Mike

    I had a Boss plow with the poly deflector for 2 years. They are tough, never broke or cracked. And they dont flop in the wind. I may get another to put on my Blizzard.

    Either way will work just fine. The thoughts on poly are more mith :nono: than fact. I've used both and if you asked me the poly is great.

    dealer for rubber

    My advice: Go to your boss dealer and ask if they have an off-brand rubber deflector. The place I bought my Boss won't even sell Boss deflectors... becuase they cost too much. It's a truck equipment place (Cannon Equipment - I think they're franchised?). A heavy duty rubber deflector with their logo on it is only $80. If you have it installed when you buy the plow they won't charge installation. I had mine added after, and my sales guy said he'd give me the parts charge ($80) and not charge installation.

    So, $80 out the door for me, $200 if you pay the labor on it. You can't even buy the "do it yourself" deflectors in a catalogue for under $150.

    I did not like the cheaper rubber it flaps too much.
