    As it states. 2 seasons old. One light, one heavy. Edges still 50%+. Very nice used plow. Nighthawks, etc. I don't mess around selling stuff or place feeler ads as to not be a PIA. BUT this is a truck I am considering buying and I have too many plows as it is. I want to see if any fast cash serious buyers would be interested before I pull the trigger. It belongs to a friend, one that is a plow dealer, so I know its history and trust it 100%.

    It it currently on a 2001 Dodge Ram and will come with everything including the hand held controller. The conversion bracket has been fabbed to lower down a bit due to it having super coils.

    I have no pics but will try to get a couple later. It is what it is though.....a 2y.o. used plow. It's not all rusted out or beat up. I would keep it myself but want to offset the truck purchase, and all my other plows are the same mount and this one is different. I'd actually love to try out a PH2, especially for the handheld, but I've made the final decision to keep them all the same at this point including my spares.

    I'm not a "make offer" guy, but I honestly have no idea on its value. It's a $7k+ plow on the retail end and his cost 2 yrs ago was $5,600 IIRC. Currently it's probably around $6k cost and over $7k cash and carry retail.

    Feel free to add your $.02, be as critical as you want, or make a rough offer that I won't hold you to until you see it in person. I'm a reasonable person.

    Sorry for the long thread.

    I sold my 2 yr old 8611 with SuperDuty mount for $5k. Stored inside, Fluid Filmed, etc. probably comparable condition. I paid $6800 installed Fall of '12. This time of year...who knows what it's worth. If you wait til the snow starts to fly around here the dealers will be so backordered it will pull a premium. That is if you want to wait.

    Thanks for the input Raymond. I appreciate it. I was thinking time of year is killing it too you're right. I can sit on it. Would be nice to move it sooner than later, but that's a good point.

    Here it is. I'm thinking $4k in the off season should be fair:

    Just to help out the uninformed......me.......the light is capable of being mounted to a one ton vehicle yes? Also, is it possible to mount this on a vehicle currently equipped with a wide out, with no changes?

    I don't believe this will mount to a wideout. In fact I would almost guarantee it won't having owned a newer Western a couple of years ago.
    The lights go with the plow. They don't stay with the truck like the older units did. A properly rated 1 ton will handle an 8611lp just fine. I had 2 on a F350 single cab and also a F350 crewcab, both with plow prep

    A Ph2 and a Wideout harness are the same as long as it has a 4 pin controller. Truck side mounts are the same aside from Western using receivers and Blizzard using a conversion bracket. So actually, I don't see why it wouldn't.

    Don't wait till November. It won't be for sale then........at least not with summer pricing ;-)

    I'm sorry. By "light" I meant the model "LP" as opposed to the full sizer which will destroy a 1 ton front end. My apologies.

    So the question is "will this plow mount to an existing truck that utilizes a wide out."

    As far as I know you need to take the western receivers off and install the blizzard like part.

    I'm looking at an 8611 and that's what I've found out.

    I meant you can use what is bolted to the truck now, just take the horns off and install the Blizzard part. Pretty cheap and easy to do.
