    Last year I picked up a group home driveway next to a lot I do. This year they sent me a list of a bunch of others to bid on,but I only took one more. Standard driveway with 2 car side pad. Sent my bid in and they call back and told me my bid was to low and didn't want me to think they were cheating me. So they doubled my bid!payup

    That driveway looks like it could do a number on your transmission so make sure you use a chain lifted plow.

    They must know you're using a ford and a boss plow they know itll break down a lot they want to make sure youll have the money to fix it. You should use a dodge/Chevy with a western/fisher v/straight/wideout.

    By the way how much should I charge in my area for a driveway like that? I have a 1500 with a 10' V. No ballast but I do have a ton of strobe lights. And of course I'll always be locked in 4 low.

    Oh Mark, it's okay to let your hair down once in a while. No need to be Mr. Serious all the time.
