    Installation was a breeze. Only took me about 2 1/2 hours & a few cold beers to put her together.

    My only plan is headlights for the plow, but the lighting kit that SB offers looks pretty cheesy IMO (and expensive!), so I have a pair of Hella 500's and will fabricate up a lightbar to mount up to the plow.

    I would look into adding a bit to the cutting edge. It looks like there's not a lot of room until it gets to the moldboard.

    Hey welcome to the world of plowing but i got to agree with some more cutting edge the angle of attack can remove that edge real fast but it looks great. Sounds like you got the right plow for your needs but they do add up quick so a ounce of prevention is worth a ton of pain..:waving:

    Ah I understand... ill have to hit the steelhouse and get some 5 x 1/4 flat. Thanks for the advise! I'm pretty excited to start doing my own plowing, I just plan on taking it easy and just practice, practice, practice... luckly I have access to fabrication tools if I break something....LOL...

    Great thing you can fab up some stuff that helps on cost. Save the recipt for every thing you got a snow removal company now. I do it for the tax thing. on the 1/4 inch thing you need to go bigger and harder for the wear ......wesport

    Does that blade block your headlights?

    Is that a manual angle?

    It blocks my main headlights, but I fabircated mounting bars for two Hella 500's driving lights, and extended LED turn signals(not shown in the pic).

    Yes, its manual angle, but theres somebody on this forum who has a power angler mod done to their Snowbear, I want to see how it works out this winter with the manual control, but most likly ill be modifying it.
