    Had my XLS installed today, and modded a set of arctic curb guards to bolt up on the XLS. Had it done at Hitch City in Mississauga.. Awesome job..

    Those curb gaurds look great, I'll have to try that. Noe you just need decal gaurds. All those decals will be gone after the first big storm, but still a great plow, I love mine.

    I have put 50 hours of plowing on my xls and the decals are hanging strong wesport. The thing you need to worry about is how fast the wing edges wear. The plow looks great.

    They are holding up great. My buddy who runs the stock on his wideout ran them down a lot this season. Are the fallines the poly edges?

    Thanks for this info . I have looked at the Fallines for the XLS . They are not to dense to prevent the wing from tripping ? Jerre's edges are nice but I dont scrape against a lot of curbing and dont need that feature .

    I would put it on a hemi before a Cummins . That Cummins really loads the front axle . Maybe lots of ballast over the rear axle would bring the front axle under its max rating .

    Poly edges

    I have my own version of the Fallline yellow poly edges. Mine are a blue color. Same specs as Fisher rubber edges. I am selling them for $105 each plus shipping. I know that the dealers are charging between $160 and $170. Call me at 207-939-4005 if you want to buy some.
