    I looked around a bit and can't find the weight of the DXT. Looking for the stainless 9'2" and 8'2".
    Considering selling the Hiniker setup and going with this for my truck (in sig). Am I completely crazy or just partially?

    Thanks for posting the info. I looked on Boss' site but it didn't have an option to scroll...the specs cut off at Trip Springs.

    The stainless 9'-2" is 52 lbs heavier than the same blade in steel ... wow, didn't realize stainless would be so much heavier considering how thin the moldboards are ... big difference.

    Just like Poly skins the SS skins offers no structural integrity and requires mold board frame to compensate unlike a steel skin that is a part of the frame/structure.

    I understand ... it's not a welded unit like the steel but the poly is only 10 lbs heavier and the stainless 52 lbs ... just surprised how heavy the stainless skin is.

    Good question, the SS is 12ga (4.41# per square foot) and Steel is 11ga (5.00#per square foot). I have no idea.
