Killer upgrade for me!

    I had a 2007 Fisher 7'6" HD on my old truck that I swapped to my new 2012 F250. Plow worked great as all my Fishers have over the years, but I really missed the X-Blade I had on my 2004 Powerstroke. So I'm cruising craigslist and low and behold a guy with a chevy 1500 wants to trade a 7'6" for his X-Blade due to the extra weight of the plow and his truck was struggling with that setup. I checked it out and he was as anal as I am, and it was as clean as my plow so we swapped!! Love it and the extra foot in width is fine with me:)

    Nice swap! That yellow Fisher in your last pic looks absolutely ridiculous on the front of that super duty!

    Like it's almost outdated or something. That's a sweet upgrade. Nice job on getting the better end of the deal.

    Thanks guys!! Been grinning since it happened!! Love looking out the window and seeing that X-Blade in front of my truck. The yellow plow did look like it was off a ranger:laughing:

    Antlerart if I was going Western it would be an MVP, but I'm a Fisher guy:nod: The Fisher push plates/truck side doesn't hang out as far or as low as Western. I will look to see if I have a pic of the front..if not I will post one in the am.

    The cool thing with western is you can take receivers off. Can't do that on fisher. I don't like the handle either lol

    Yep that's how it went down,I didn't want to do the swap at my house because then he could have come back later and snagged the plow....I know I'm over reacting but today you never know....
