    At least the plow matches the truck. That blazer must have some serious front end suspension upgrades to even support a plow like that.:eek:

    That plow is just tall... Looks tall enough for a 1 ton truck... Do you see how it's sloping backwards?
    But hey, if the truck can push it, plow on.

    That wing looks almost identical to nben's wing that he made!

    Hmm, same state, maybe someone copied his design :confused:

    Looks like a pretty slick truck, other than that, uh, different paint job!

    That wing is one made by Cox Manufacturing, a somewhat local company that I believe is out of business. As I said in another post, our first rendition consisted of a Cox wing post (front hook-up), and a home-made rear box. Our second was similar, but modified to include full blade trip. The Cox set-up has no blade trip, only compression springs on the two rear arms (you can see them in that pic). Not a very forgiving design. Also the Cox set-up was a little too light-weight for us. Our current design includes similarities to that of the Cox design, ideas of my own, and also likenesses to a few other home-made set-ups that are in the area. Perhaps it would be better to say I copied their design? Also, our blade is home-made and has more curl than the Cox wing.

    I will look and see if I have any pics of our wing on either (or both) of our previous trucks. :D

    oops:( I remember reading that now that you mention it, sorry bout that.

    You're right that doesn't seem to be very forgiving. If you hit something and the blade didn't trip, i bet you'd get really tired of using it, so would the truck!

    Actually they are all the same truck. It was originally white. I can't find any pics of the wing on the '81.
