    Had to create a new account but hopefully most of you who knew me recognize the truck.

    I finally pulled the trigger and bought myself my first plow, and a brand new one at that. Got a pretty good price on it getting it in August.

    It's the 8.6

    I have the 8.1L big block and only a 4670lb front end so I didn't want to put too much weight on the front even with Timbrens.

    Almost forgot to mention, I was able to get the snow deflector for free.

    How? Well my boss picked the truck up from the dealer and when he got in he noticed they installed the joystick instead of the handheld (which i specified upon drop-off). So he told them off and said "make this right" (since now I would have 3 holes in my dash). So they made the swap and gave us the deflector.
