    Finally got some snow. Wasn't much but I still got to plow. Only took a few pics. Pushed about 2 inches of wet slop.

    Yea that snow was a mess was alot of water so no mater how many times I got in front of the curbs it would still be a little messy. The rest will melt but I do get to the curb as close as i can. I always do a neat plow job. Hate when it's all sloppy hahah.
    nope 295-75-16 bfg at's. Yes I like them. I think they will last longer then my nitto terra grapplers that I had on before.

    I see. Did you do anything to accomodate this size? cutting? Did you level yours using new torsion keys or did you just adjust your factory ones?

    I'm running 265's on a similar truck thinking about going to 285's. 295's look real good. Kind of an uncommon size.

    Yea I don't really like the wings and they wouldn't look good on the xblade
    I am waiting for a big stroms to come up this way. I am sick of these little storms that are all wet slop. I want to start plowing some deep powder haha.

    But little storms are faster money Quick work vs Deep snow My thoughts after last Fed Blizzard I hope I don't see that again 23'' in 12 hrs then 2 more days of High winds Then 2 days in a loader pushing piles back some places hauling snow away Yes made some nice$$ but at the cost some body wear I was in my truck 32 hrs with total 4 hrs of sleep

    When I bought the truck it already had 295's on it that were nittos. Its deff an odd size. My front bumper is trimed on each side and I have keys in the front but they arn't cranked up.
    Yea the little stroms are nice . I blast threw those pretty quick but we havn't had a big strom yet this season and we are due for one.
    Hopeefully there will be a enough to plow tommorrow

    Our first two snows of the 11/12 season were 6'' and 8'' of that heavy wet stuff.
    You could wring water out of it.
    Exactly one week apart almost to the hour.
