    love the wide-out!!. its a good truck. Just get it to a shop and have them do EGR delete kit, cold air intake, head studs, few other odds and ends and the motor is good to go..

    DRW or SRW?

    Post some pics!

    Long truck and heavy plow. I hope you plow big parking lots.

    the setup is killer i have the wideout on my 07 psd and the combo def moves snow youll like it. i have the 6000lb springs in the front and get hardly any sag at all when lifting the plow. in medium to larger lots it really shines for the smaller lots sometimes i find just bc the truck is extended with the 8ft bed can get alil annoyin to get around.
