    Snow-Ex SP8500 with Snow-Ex PWS175 wet system
    2 extra leaf springs, HD Shocks, Timbrens and SD Anti sway bar in back.

    Nice lookin truck! Do you think the po po will give you any grief about the salter hanging out like that? I guess as long as its secured they shouldn't. Good luck with it. What size boss did you go with?

    Will have a 8 ft BOSS trip edge attached to it.

    I doubt it. I have yet to add the yellow caution tape on the chute housing and spinner shaft. It is bolted the same as a 8 ft bed only sticks out 6 more inch's because of the 75 gal tank in front of it. Had a few behind me on way home and so far so good. ussmileyflag

    How does she ride with the add-a-leafs without a heavy load behind it/in the bed?

    What kind of Spot Lights do you have on the back end of the salter? Do they work well at night?

    LED flood/spot light. I believe there is 7 LED's Not sure of name. Got them at Adam's for $62 each. Yes they are bright. With the salter work light and those 2 it is brighter than the headlights. George wired me up with a 3 way switch so I can use em in reverse only. On all the time. Or off all the time. Don't know how I went so long without something after using them.

    Well I actually took the leaf springs out and added 2 leafs in the middle of the stock set. Rides stiff when empty but not so much that it is abnormal. To me my dodge was stiffer with just Timbrens.

    Cool, thanks for the info. The first thing I do to every work truck I buy is add a good set or two of reverse light wired up just like yours.:drinkup:

    I am told it is a brine mix with beet juice.

    Will get the new plow when the Dodge is sold. Was good to get some hours and if it is a indication of the hours I will get per event I hope to have it paid for this year.

    Yes.
