    So I have a Meyers Drive Pro 6'8 for my half ton truck and want to buy wings for it to make it little wider instead of buying a bigger plow. Every set of wings I found say its not recommended to put them on my size plow.

    I was wondering if anyone has put them on my size plow and if I do buy a set would they even fit?

    I think they don't make them for the smaller plows because the wings would probably cause too much stress on the plow (additional wing weight and snow load). I had a 7.5' mvp that i wanted wings for, but couldn't. I switched to an 8.5' mvp, and do have Western wings for it. Each wing is probably 40-50 lbs.

    Meyer makes a 7.6 Drive Pro. Why not just change out your blade. I'm sure everything else is the same.

    I called one place near me about buying the moldboard but that was little over $1000 without tax and said I would have to buy different springs. So I was hoping to get wings and get it little wide for about $200 instead of $1200.

    Could take a look on craigslist to see if anyone is trying to dump a 7.5 for cheap and just take the moldboard from that one.

    Just another option to keep cost down.

    could always go up to your local fab/weld shop & ask about getting some custom made ones.
