    I looked at a 2011 truck yesterday on the lot and it had a 8' 2" Boss V plow on it. It was a 6995.00 add on for the plow. I have never had or even priced a Boss plow, I have always had westerns. I just can't see this plow costing that much. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Tim

    Check out Equipment Specialists, they are a site sponsor.

    I'd guess that plow should be about 5k plus install/tax.

    Who is doing the install? That is just a little high, Heck my ebling back blade is cheaper. A 8'2'' boss vee around here is about 5500 out the door.

    Yea, I bet the dealer marked up the install to make some $$$.

    Had a new 8' 2" boss V installed on one of my trucks wiring and all - $6,600. Doesn't seem high to me.

    You should be closer to $5500 for the plow, but you will like the plow a lot, worth every penny I paid!!

    9'2" Boss VXT installed with Smartlocks on a 2011 3500 HD for me was a little less than $5,800 in Northern, NY. They are getting a pretty good markup on that one :dizzy:

    This sounds closer to a real price to me.

    I got the real price on the plow, when I went to see about buying the truck. It was 5700.00 including tax. I ask why mark it up so much. The salesman said it was a mistake. I highly doubt it.
