    Well you have 2 days. Call a Boss dealer and see what a new installed costs. Kind of small for that truck.

    I would put at least an 8.5 or a 9 foot plow on a 1 ton truck.

    Way too narrow for a crew cab long bed truck. Need an 8.5 for those.

    For a dually you should go with the 9ft. to cover the rear wheels...

    Heck!!! If this guy was closer to me I'd get it now and pay the duty at teh border. These are $7k installed here.

    Anything over 8.499' in Quebec requires a Special license/permit so this size is good.

    Depends on what you wanna do. If the streets are tight residential driveways then bigger than 8' you might have a problem just maneuvering around the cars in the street.

    just my 2 cents...ok.ok... 1 cent... lol ;P
