    I'm going to try and remember to take a few pics now and then while I'm out.
    Here's a few I took last night, may have a chance for a few more tonight.

    Went from light flurries after a clipper system to large flakes for about 10 minutes, you could watch the snow cover your tracks.

    Another company in town owned by 2 brothers. Used to do 99% of the towing in the area, had a couple 1 ton wheel lifts, a roll back, and a couple semi tow trucks. Their both in their 70's now and have really slowed down on work but still do a little bit of stuff to keep active. Went over and talked to them after I was done with my route, I've been watching them plow snow since I was a kid.
    1986 F350 6.9 idi/ auto. Has a Boss V also from 1986. Said the plow has had the motor replaced once and rebuilt once. Otherwise no major problems or breakdowns.

    Up until recently they had a 1985 F350 that was a twin to the 1986 with a straight blade on it. Their roll back also had a blade on it.

    I rolled 100k pulling my gooseneck.

    The lights do suck at times not being able to step there. The pattern from them makes them worth the frustration, really lights up behind my truck.


    Another pic I found. I don't fit to well at school.

    Another I found. My dad rigged up some wing return spring safety cables. An idea I had after reading posts on here about them taking off in random directions when they break.

    Do you have any more info on that ford towtruck with the boss v blade??? How did they get the mount to fit around the radiator cause I have a boss rt3 mount and it wont fit cause of the radiator being so big. Is that a rt1 mount???

    Probably had just a 4" straight pipe, same thing I have. Probably the most common aftermarket exhaust size for them.

    The spreader is pretty good, I wish when it turned on it wouldn't go wide open for a second and then slow down to whatever you have the dial set at.

    It's an Rt1 plow (from 1986), chain lift, etc.
