    Went to the dealer to get a couple things and left with $236 less in my wallet!!!!

    All I intended to pick up was a Qt of hydro fluid and a set of markers for my wings. Well I also ended up buying a snow flap ($183.81) and a can of touch up paint ($15.44 WTF!!!!!!!!!). The flap I know I'll be happy with and the markers will help out too. The fluid was a must since I was a little low, but a can of spray paint for $15 bucks!!!! This better be some "SPECIAL" paint for the $$$$$.

    Boss marks up everything they sell. for a snow deflector just go to your local farm supply and get an old piece of conveyor belting and make your own for free.

    Hope u went to crystal truck equipment and not aspen Equipment... don't give them any business. Sry if I sound harsh, but they wont honor warranties, and they are just mean.

    Crystal knows how to take care of people.

    Dakotasrock-- I'm sure you mean CRYSTEEL in Fridley right? Yep I did go to them, I only buy from 2 dealers, the other would be Plow World. I haven't heard to much about Aspen and never bought anything from them. It's to bad you had a sour experience with 'em.

    The guys at Crysteel are pretty good to ya and so is Chris over at Plow World (LwnmwrMan22 can vouch for that with his V-XT). I could of drove to the nearest BOSS dealer in Maple Grove but I'll drive the extra miles for good customer service any day.

    Just sell everything below cost, you'll make it up in volume.:confused:

    Old IH red is the same colour as Boss. $183 for a snow flap is a smoking deal, around here they are over $300.

    $300 ouch..:eek: Average prices around here is $205. I bought mine from a local dealer and on there website it's $183.00 so I bought it online and picked it up. On the other hand if I were to go into that same dealer and buy one it would have been $205.

    Ha..Ha...I would of tried that but some of her lip stick cost almost as much as the spray paint!!!:dizzy: Not only that it would have left some Fluid Film residue on there and she would have for sure known something was up.:yow!:
