    i've used a snoway for many years now and love the down-pressure feature. but i just bought a silverado 1500 and was looking into the wester cause it looks like most of the brackets come off in the summer so it doesn't look horrible (this is my Daily driver). so again how does the unimount 7.6 backplow?

    Decent in lighter powder. Heavy wet it will ride up on the snow.

    Put a hinged back drag bar on it and it should do fine I tink they are great. Plus it is all mechanical so it is a real simlpe way of backdragging. Not much can go wrong with them.

    I don't think western sells them. I make my own but I believe some of the plow dealerships around here also make them. Everyone that I have made them for says they wouldn't plow without one from now on. I live in western WI. If you have basic welding skills you would very easily be able to make one.
