    Nice truck and plow. What year is it? How well does it handle the 7.5' HD?

    The truck is a 99 chevy silverado 2500, handles the plow with ease, should have bought a bigger plow but I got a great deal on this fisher so the 7.5ft will work for now. The plow is a 03 fisher its in very good condition few small spots of rust but overall very clean.

    Looks good! I think you might like the 7.5 with wings better than an 8, as with the wings you have a bit more width and versatility, but if you get a real wet heavy dump you have the luxury of pulling the wings off which will be easier on the truck. Good luck with it!

    BTW: Just curious why your plow headlights are mounted opposite of where they should be? (right on left, left on right)

    The Douglas Dynamics plows..now if they were both Chevys...all you need is a Chevy with a Western Ultramount and a Chevy with a new Blizzard to complete that picture.

    How do you like the pro-wings?

    Pro wings are the best make the straight blades so much more efficient!! no more chasing dribbles of snow all over when doing big lots. Wouldn't plow without them now that I got them.

    Nah, I don't either. Out of the Douglas Dynamics plows, I'd probably have to have an 8' Powder Coated Steel Fisher X-Blade

    Pro wings area bout 1/4 of what the OEM wings are. I was looking to add the boss wings to one of my Boss plows but theyre about $700. Guess its worth getting the pro-wings first and maybe upgrade later on to teh Boss wings.

    Set those Intensifiers up for dual burn and you'll be really impressed.

    What does dual burn mean? If you are talking about running the lows and highs at the same time won't that get the bulb too hot and burn it out? I asked about this in the western section and got no answers.

    Yes, lows with highs. I ran that way for a full season with no problems.

    You should move the rubber from your wings in a couple of inches, it increases the life span and "scrapping" ability of them, now the will just fold back in heavy snow or icy conditions and leave a little snow behind, when you move them in a couple of inches the can use the trip edge to stay straight better.

    Outside of that, Great looking plow and truck!

    I don't really have a problem back blading with them like I thought, they work better pushing forward obviously. Haven't really noticed any wear on them yet even if they start to wear new pieces of rubber are only thirty bucks on ebay so they are cheap to fix.
