    For this setup I only have $235.00 out of pocket for this setup. Hell yesterday morning I made $210.00.

    1) Guy gave me loop mount and clevis for mowin money he did not have (owed $240.00) =$0.00
    2) Needed brackets for given clevis, so bought whole mount kit brackets and all used $250.00 = $250.00
    3) Sold given clevis for $200.00 on E-Bay = $50.00
    4) Needed help to get clevis mounted on truck (http://lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=125568) for $30.00 = $80.00
    5) Special bolts $40.00 = $120.00
    6) "A" solenoid $70.00 = $190.00
    7) Hinge pins $35.00 = $225.00
    8) Misc. hardware $10.00 = $235.00
    9) Traded 1993 Dodge D150 (value probably $700.00) for whole setup, E47 pump, lights, wiring harness, A frame, blade (have other blade setup up for $250.00, 8' poly) pump mount, truck mount (these last 2 items are older style) Will be selling mounts and this blade on E-bay. = TOTAL OUT OF POCKET $235.00

    Not to bad huh?

    Actually for that whole rig, my total out of pocket is approx $300.00 after tax, title, and plates.

    Slap some paint on it and it will really clean it up.
    One of the first plows I had was rebuilt in the off season.
    Good Luck.
