    looked like one hell of a storm.. I remember the 23" we got here a couple years back. I think most places we plowed 3-4 times.. Usually everyone gets a salt occurence here after plowing. We pretty much didn't salt at all till it was over

    LOL...not mine. I belive they plowed it twice though. It was near a condo complex my buddy and I do. I stopped there to relieve myself and saw that HUGE Amereican flag and thought it would make a great pic.

    We got 15-21" depending where you were within New Castle County. We plowed everything 3-4 times too and then salted the ones that wanted it.

    I know...I was solo most of the time and the other guy I plow with was never really near for too long. I was kinda disappointed that I didn't get any action shots! Oh well, maybe next time.

    Thanks man! I love my GMC especially when I'm making payup with it instead of paying that car payment. LOL
    Thanks man I appreciate it.

    :nod: X2. Last year I got the bug to get my own equipment and do my own thing instead of using someone else's stuff. Call Basher the day before the storm was gonna hit (on a Sunday I believe) and he installed it that day even though he was busy as chit. Now that's service! I definately try and push business his way when I can!;)

    Does your truck have the plow prep package? I notice there is no cab lights and I was certian the cab lights came with the plow prep, feel free to correct me as I am looking for that exact truck.

    Any complaints with the truck?

    I can check the sticker, but I know for certain that it came with the tow package and I thought it had the plow package, but I can't swear to it. What else does it come with besides the cab lights?

    I love the truck and really have no complaints over than I sometimes wish I got a diesel. I discovered that when I towed my rig out to Norwalk, Oh for a race. Those two big climbs on the PA Turnpike are a killer!:angry::realmad: As far as MPG, I get between 10-12 MPG around town and between 16.5-21.8 MPG on the highway. If I keep it between 65-68MPH the milage is on the higher side, but as soon as I go over 68 MPH, I'll loose 3-5 MPG immediately. The ride is very good. It gets alittle rougher when I turn the torsion bars up for the plow, but other than that its fine.

    If you are interested, the dealer who I got my truck from is a friend of mine and wouldn't screw you over. PM me and I can give you his name and number.:)
