    My truck looks the same in the Summer and the Winter, the only difference is the plow.

    I'm not farmiliar with how flares mount, do they leave holes all through your panels? Or do they attach in the wheel wells and the other "bolts" are for show?

    The headlight is out, my air intake is behind it. One pin and unplug both headlights and it's out, takes a total of about 10 seconds.

    Wow that is a lot of truck to plow with. I couldn't imagine having to do some of my driveways with that. Looks like a well maintained rig though. I always liked that style front end on the Chevys.

    It took some getting used to for size compared to my old truck. Driveways or small parking lots can get interesting pretty quickly. A couple of the driveways I do are about the same length as my truck.

    Thanks, I try to keep it looking good. Should look better once I get the new tires on it.

    My good truck is the only one that really gets a makeover in the summer. Becomes the company bid/ showoff truck (the few days it spends clean... frickin black.

    She gets different wheels and tires, looses some of the extra garbage that is on it in the winter. CB whip, mars light, etc.


    The other trucks shed the plows and v-boxes and they are back to work.


    I will have to get some pics up of the before and after.
