    Here she is boys. Got my ebling about 3 months ago. It was "last years model" and the only 14 footer they had left. I snapped a few pics just a few mins ago of it. I also have new led work lights on the back. The 2 on the bed rails are on a switch so I can see the wings on my plow. The other 2 are wired to come on when the truck goes in reverese. Also a pic of my switchs mounted in my overhead counsole. (starting from left to right.) Switch 1: Code 3 3 up optix leds (mounted in the grille). Switch 2: Sound off signal 8 light ultra light warning pattern (mounted in the back window). Swtiches 3 and 4 are for the arrow stick. The arrow stick is built into the same light. 3 is for left arrow, 4 is right arrow, and if both are on its center out. switch 5 is for the led work lights on the bed rail. Switch 6 is for the truck plow head light switch. I also have a 4 light ultra light that I am working on mounting in the front window on the pass side. Also trying ti figure out which swtich to mount it on. All my swtiches except for number 6 have relays. And now onto the pics of the plow. I will get pics of the leds and my box all my wiring is run to later.

    Very nice!!! I also like the work lights. Now all you need is snow. Is the wiring disconnect box for the Ebling from Ebling or did you make that up?

    Thanks. They are very bright. I made that box myself. I couldn't get the holesaw kit out and drill into the box. I just couldn't do it. I did have to drill 2 holes for the power cables, but I can live with that because its up high enough and you can't really see it if the box isn't there.

    I did it myself. In total it took about a half day total working non stop. But I did it in about 2 days. Just took my time, and I made the box where the wiring plugs into.

    That thing's going to be so much fun. I wish I had a reason to buy something like that.

    I don't like the hole saw kit either. I used a stainless bracket that Ebling supplied for one install and worked pretty good also. I think I might copy your idea for my next one.

    Shipping is slow. Took about a month to get them. But Worth it because truck and tow wants about 80 for the same light. I ordered 2 at first for the bed rail, My boss saw them and wanted a set, and I wanted another set too so I ordered 4 more.

    Pat, you don't really need a reason to buy one. Just buy one and justify it later.

    i had to trim off the lip on the underside of the rail for the box to bolt up flush with the rail. I first copied eblings design, but then didn't want the power cables just sittin on the bottom of the bed and take a chance at something getting smashed. This is the best way to do it.

    I want one even worse now. Just about bought one for this year with the new plow truck but I was uncertain about one of my larger accounts. Now that I got the account back I could just about use one. Maybe I'll be ordering one if we get snow up to wazzzoooo like they say.

    How does the ex cab handle the weight of the plow? I have a 06 2500 HD ex cab and was considering putting a Ebling on it. But I'm concerned with the weight.
