    Does Western offer the curb shoes for the MVP or just the MVP Plus? I no longer have a local dealer to check with (not that they were all that helpful anyhow) I looked on Western's website and there is a picture of them, but it doesn't give any other info.

    on my mvp i just made my own. just take a piece of metal the thickness of your cutting edge and weld a big round piece of metal on them( make sure the round piece you weld on is a little on top of the piece of metal you weld it to; It works good if you take your old worn out cutting edge and weld round stock onto that.then you wont have to cut holes to bolt it onto the plow.

    Thanks. I was kind of thinking of doing that. Just thought there was a factory option that'd be quick and easy. The shoes I saw have two bolt hloes in them. My cutting edge only has one hole near the end, so unless I want to drill holes in my plow/cutting edge, I'll have to fabricate something.

    dont drill holes in the plow. Just go to the next hole in the plow, you might have to put a ft. long piece of metal on it to reach the second hole but you will want more than 1 bolt holding it on or it will turn on you. I imagine they make them for that plow but why spend the money when you can make them cheaper yourself.payup
