    Its been a long 2 months, but I have everything ready to go, and how I want it - pretty much!

    2001 SIlverado 1500 4 X 4 Z71
    BOSS Superduty 7'6"
    SnowEx 575
    Strobes N More E series Amber (rear).
    Front end Timbrens

    Had a tough time figureing out how to mount the spreader controller- and it turned out I had the "tools' right there with me, but it turned out nice - at least I think so!

    I appreciate everyones help on this site - I know I will continue to tap into the wealth of knowledge available here!

    Again thanks!

    The BOSS site says 680lbs. Standard duty is around 630lbs. I took me a while to decide to "upgrade" to the Super Duty. After numerous discussions - I decided on the Super Duty. I have 500lbs of ballast and Timbrens. In only drops an inch with the Timbrens. WIthout them, it was a few inches.

    Turffscapes -

    I like them. Though I had a tough time getting them to work (didn't have a proper ground- so not the fault of the product) they work good now. If you truly know what you are doing from the start - they are easy to install.

    They are a little off axis so I think I loose a little light, but they are good. I don't have anything to compare them too though. I posted some video (in the strobes section). The video doesn't display the true light output (sorry used an I phone). I would love to hear from someone who has any experience with these LED's & others (Whelen Vertex)?
