    I still have the temporary cutting edges that came on the plow new.. They don't look like they need to be replaced yet... Is there a wear pont that I should be looking at..? Thanks

    I'd leave at least 1" of metal below the hole

    You need to replace it before the trip edge springs start hitting the pavement.

    Don't know much about Boss, but on my plow when it gets close to the mounting bolts I replace it.

    Boss is weird. The original cutting edge on the dxt is attached to the trip springs. Once you wear it down you attach your replacement edge to the original one
