    LOL, Any other issues...like getting pulled over while driving w/ them on. I'm getting ready to install mine.

    They are quite beefy, not much extra room in the truck for storage.

    Nope never got pulled over. Should of though when I had em mounted on the 9'2 vee, that thing was wide. Now I just run em on the 8'2 vee & 7.6 straight blade. The 8'2 is still pretty wide, but not crazy like the 9'2 was.

    BTW- don't try going in the bank drive through with em on.......You get stuck pretty easy lol

    the VXT wings are not the same wings as the straight plows... so you guys are saying your switching wings between a super duty 7'6-9 footer and a vxt v plow? ok

    same goes for wings as the blade wing of the v plow itself, plow with V towards the truck and if you hit something, just folds it back.

    plow in scoop mode and clip something like a curb good and your gonna pay the price, wings or no wings!:mechanic:

    Did I ever say I was switching wings from 1 plow to the next ?
    I have a set of wings for each of my plows.
    The 8'2" is a VXT, the other 2 (9'2"V & 7'6" straight) are standard height.

    heres a link to one of our vids we made last year:

    haven't had any issues with ours. Make sure your plow has new or close to new edges or else you won't be able to adjust the wing edges enough to match and it will plow unevenly.
