    Don't know if pro wings can be installed on a 7'-6" super duty plow or not.

    If it's an '03 or newer with the diagonal moldboard bracing they'll go right on once the appropriate holes are added. Older ones with the rear moldboard boxing take some additional work but can still be installed.

    Thanks. I'm guessing that I have the older one since the bracing is vertical. Do you know what the additional work entails?

    Need to cut a large hole (4" hole saw works good) through the rear box bracing so you can reach into them to install/remove the pin and washer so you can mount/dis-mount the wings.

    I found some installation instructions. It looks like a 1 1/8" hole is what is required for the pin to be installed. The washers and lynch pin then go on the backside of the blade. Is there something I'm not seeing here?

    Re-read my first post, if you don't have the box bracing behind the moldboard there's no extra work involved other than what the paperwork you have reads. If it does have the box bracing then a large hole in that bracing is needed to access the lynch pin.

    Here's the backside of my plow. I should not need to drill a 4" hole correct?
