    Nice clean rig, although I'm not much of a GM fan. Are those the Winters Mfg curb guards? If so, how are they holding up?

    Thank you, I am in Geauga county

    Yes, they are Winter Equipment's curb guards. They are the best investement for a $450 cutting edge. I wouldnt plow without them and this is my second year with that cutting edge and curb guards you see in the pic and I plow long stretches of concrete even when there is less than a half of an inch because no salt is allowed in the area I plow.

    does your truck sit that level with the plow up? If so, what did you do?

    It drops about an inch and a half when its up. I have air bags in the rear with #1000 ballast and in the front the t-bars are cranked all the way with timbrens. The only thing the truck doesnt like about the plow is you cant turn unless the wheels are rolling.


    Thanks man, I do have the fridge fully stocked with Busch, Bud Light and Coors Light. But you know what happens when you start drinking, it starts snowing then you get that phone call haha :nod:
