    Finally got this truck set up... just need a couple loose ends tied and were totally done!

    Got the plow for $400, mount was 475, and wiring was 200. so total i'm in it for $1075, not bad!

    its an 8'6" unimount, and the truck is a 1999 GMC 2500 (non HD).

    Handles the plow pretty well, I did crank the Torsion bars a couple turns, but plan on getting timbrens for it too...

    Now just need some snow to push!!!

    Using my tools and yard to put it on...freebee!! :laughing:

    Looks awesome and I'm very glad to see it working. Now we just need some dang snow. Sorry about missing that one little black wire. You practically stole that plow.

    Nice truck! instaed of Timbrens, why not just buy some readylift keys or GM Green keys? It will level the truck even when the plow isn't on, it will look better IMO.

    What about just using ballast during plowing events. The truck will perform much better with the ballast also.

    I was told that the person in NC with all the Lowes lost the contract for poor or non performance. Does anyone know if this is true? I know rates were low on these (IMO).

    I know Ray just picked up a ton of lowes. I don't know what the story was behind it.

    Lost them when? I just plowed several Lowes a few weeks ago.

    Not probably, it was for Ray. Maybe that's why he got all those.

    I have green keys and use about 600lbs of lead suitcase weights too, works well.
