    I am on vacation in Wildwood and just saw a Raptor with a snowplow frame that looked like a fisher minute mount, I have never seen a sports truck that was so done up with a plow on it. Any thoughts on it would be interesting to hear about. A rainy chilly, windy day in wildwood, I always have snow removal on my mind, hope this winter is as good as last year was to me.

    I'm sure it'll be fine. They're built a lot better than 10 years ago.

    He had an mvp3 on it as well

    Wrong

    Chain lifts and plastic salters save trannys.

    Well......

    first generation of Tanny savers was a chain lifts

    Trip was 2nd, followed by plastic salters.

    I keep forgetting the 1st one.

    Why do trip edges save tranny's or is this a tongue in cheek thing?
