    Oem from your dealer, beat them up on the price. They have room to work.

    OEM prices were disgusting, it was over $500. for just the 4 pieces alone uninstalled.....if your going to scrape a piece of steel across frozen tundra....you really don't need to do it with the wear item factored into the cost of the new snowplow. Sure you can if money is not an issue.

    check your local NAPA, and any plow supply houses the state or municipal contractors use. We have several places that supply edges along with other items and you would never think of them based on their company name. They may not have the edge you need, but they may be able to get them, or make one from existing stock.
    the last place I bought my edge from is one of those places... I got a 8" 5/8 for the cost of a 6" 1/2 , and they carried hardened similar long wearing.

    It's just AR500 plate. You could always get some from a steel supplier and make your own.

    My trucks are all strait blade but cutting edges cost me around $30 ea if I remember correctly. It's like $56 for 20' and I use the drops to make wear plates for other stuff.

    I highly doubt your buying 5/8"thk 6" or 8" wide 20' long ar strip for $56 bucks.I don,t think you could buy A36 for that cheap either.JMO.
