    Is that boss a 8.2 or 9.2? Is your truck gas or diesel? How does it hold the plow up? I want to get the same plow for my 2500hd with duramax crew cab but not sure which size to go with.

    it is a 2006 2500HD duramax diesel. the plow is an 8'2" and the only reason i didn't get the 9'2" is it wouldnt fit in my garage. i have firestone air bags on the front end of the truck to hold the weight of the plow. i would get the 9'2" if you can, i think im going for wings since i can take them on and off to get in and out of the garage. thanks everyone for the comments. i can't wait for snow now!

    I like your tires. I have Duratracs on my truck, too. If you haven't plowed with them yet. You will be impressed. I have found that they are great for plowing. For such an aggressive tread, they do excellent on ice and hardpack. Nice truck and plow, too!!

    Yeah, funny how you can see those types of things. You will like the traction for plowing.

    thanks for looking jim
    i love the air bags. it made the truck right A LOT better then stock. my buddy has timbrens on his 2500HD and they work but the ride sucks. if you got the $$$ buy the airbags. im putting an on board air compressor on my truck soon so i dont have to mess with filling them off my garage compressor. the tires are 265/75/R16 goodyear duratracks and i love them. they ride quite. thanks for looking
