    ok so im looking at a 01 dodge 1500 and i was thinkin since i have a 6'6'' plow could i just get the mount for the dodge and throw wings on the 6.5footer b.c it would be like a 7.5 footer right or not...u let me know i have the cash to buy a new plow but it was kinda back up money

    i dont' see why you couldn't do that as long as the hydraulics can take it and i wouldn't see why they wouldn't be able to. go for it

    We had a boss 7.5 v on a 99 reg short box, it held it fine, and it was an awesome residential truck. Wish we still had it.

    great setup, the best kind is the one you don't have to pay a bunch for.

    the wings are not going to save you any time on a residential drive, they are mostly intended for lots or if you have to move snow some distance.

    use the s10, save the money- might need it for repairs. and next year look at the type of accounts you have and set yourself up that best suits those accounts.

    Because competition is great, and weather unpredictable, my game plan is to buy with cash only what you need, run it as long as you can, and practice preventative maintenance. Sure I would love to have the new extreme vee, but there is nothing wrong with my plow- in fact it is making me money.
