    Better hope Sno don't look in on this page, he'll tell you its I'm possible and impractical to run a rig like that.

    Now quite holding back with the details, spill the beans.

    Both of the new trucks this year. Still trying to find a salter for the regular cab.

    Ext cab is a 15 and the regular cab is a 16.

    It's the 6.4 . I didn't need the cummins . Couldn't see the added price for the motor when I don't put many miles on and I don't need it for towing

    LOL, yea, I know some on this site will shoot down a rig like this. However, it works very well, it weights 8740 lbs and my traction is great. This is a dedicated snow plow truck, the plows will stay on year round, I have about 13K into the entire build, including plows. I do all my own work from fab to paint. Its paid for and will return my money in the first year or two depending on the amount of snow we get. The details can be found under a thread called ground up build (somthing like that) under my name.
    Quick stats, 93 Bronco, enclosed cab, boxed frame, 04 Superduty running gear, 460 CID FI, central hydraulics, etc.

    I never said that, and your late to the party as usual.:drinkup:

    Ive watched his build.;)..


    pisst, old dog....
    Thumbs Up
    a lift & big wide tires and its mine, the tires are the biggest BFG mud terrains they make in a 16"rim,
    it works well in the mud/dirt pushing brush,
    and it has the GV light package...
    my other trucks with the skinny tires are better suited for plowing snow. ;)

    I broke down and bought a 2016 Jeep Wrangler. We got over 16" of snow here last week and got hammered with 40+ new contracts, in a day. Next year we will be adding another tractor/blower set up. I will post pics of the Jeep, when we get the plows on!
