    Ok this may have beeen asked but I checked the snoway site and didn't find my answer, so I will go right to Mr. Snoway himself. Doe sthe v-wing trip in vee or scoop mode or does it stay straight and tear it off the truck.
    There are some vids and stuff about the old 28V but nothing on the megablade trip design. I sold my Fisher and am waiting for my dealer to get the v-wing but I am curious about the tripping stuff.
    Also is it too heavy for a 2500HD CCSB w/Duramax diesel and yes I will get timbrens in the front I already know that.

    The blade will trip normally in the v position. If in the scoop position and the blade needs to trip the wing relief valves will kick in and allow the wings to come back to the straight position and trip.

    I just sold my fisher straight blade and am waiting for my dealer to get his MegaV in stock so I can buy it. I was curious to see how they tripped, they had a vid on the 28V but not these new ones yet.

    I think they should put a reflective decal across the top of headgear between lights. Maybe say MegaV or SnowayV something that stands out.

    I think the Western/Boss lights are much "cooler" looking. For $5,000+ the lights on this new mega blade leave something to be desired.

    No, thats where you install the front license plate. Add some amber strobes under the lights in the hooped area, plus some mega 150watt offroad lights.

    I agree about the lights. for the money they should atleast get you some real good lighting, sealed beams just give off the light as good as say the Nighthawks by western.

    with the aux. relay function you can bolt a set of blinders on the roll bar for when you need them:D

    Or by changing the harness on the light fixture you can mount any kind of light if you wanted to change. I was looking at a picture of a western with Night Sabers just yesterday
