    Well, it's was getting close to a month late, but today we got 4-5" of super-dry, fluffy snow (12° F today, Nov. 8th), and even tho I didn't need to, I hooked up the Blizzard and scraped out my yard/driveway, just to shake the bugs out of the truck & plow. I got a couple calls today, but since we're supposed to get up to another 8" by tomorrow, I told them, let's just wait til tomorrow after this storm dumps itself out, so tomorrow I'll have a few jobs to do, minimum. The new truck is still in the shop undergoing it's plow-worthy make-over,... hope to have it done in a couple more days. So, I snapped a couple pictures today of what I did,... but this thread will probably just be a general repeat of the one from last year,... so it may be kinda boring, but that's all I got,... except maybe with a different colored truck,... :bluebounc

    There's a couple small things to fix on the Blizzard & the truck,... but everything worked perfect,... we've had below zero temps for several weeks now, so the ground is nice & hard,..

    what kind of after market lights are you using on the plow's light bar? I think you said so in the last thread but that would take a couple of days to find. Great pictures and nice write ups on the plows last thread.
