    I had road debris building up between the rubber and the wing, this seemed to be stressing the rubber, so I had a buddy weld the channel over the rubber. I think this will work out great.

    thanks jay, in the top left picture you can just make out the lights I added to light up the wings, it drove me nuts last winter not having light out at the edges of the plow.

    Nice idea. Did you install the pro wings yourself or did the dealer? I've been thinkin about gettin some. Also could you get a pic or 2 of the lights that you added?

    I love the wings, they are the best bang for the buck, period. Come-on, there are lots of improvements we can make, but not for $200 and get at least a 20% improvement in effeceincy.

    the pic post above has the lights in it, they are the tractor type, about $10 each, I bought a case of halogen bulbs to replace the tungstons that came with them, so that puts the price up to about $17 each. they wire up with just a power wire, the ground is the mount. But on the plow they were not grounding so I had to add a ground wire from the mount and run it down to the ground screw for the plows hydraulic pump. The power wire goes back to the solinoids I put under the rear seat, those are connected to 2 toggles I put in the dash to opperate my federal signal highlighter on the roof and the salting light and the reverse lights.

    I installed the wings myself, take your time and it is easy, just the instructions are vague at best.
