    Looks good! With some ballast it should sit just fine?

    Everything looks great. I have the same plow. Have you considered putting the wings on? They work great, really cut down on plowing time.

    I always to carry about 150 lb's of salt with me. It does help.

    I have considered it, I was at my dealer for there plow days that they have every year and they had a set on the same plow and it looked sweet. Im still thinking about it.

    If you think 150lbs helps, try ~600-700lbs behind the rear axle, you'll be amazed, helps level it, and alot more traction.

    thats closer to what I was thinking....I cant imagine 150lbs in the bed of a truck like that even being noticable?

    Its not really that noticeable, I just haven't carried much more than that because I also carry two snowblowers, shovels, gas tanks and sometimes a push spreader depending on the storm. It is a long box but that stuff takes up some room. Ill try and add some more weight over the axle.

    Thanks, I have a whelen responder.

    Good looking set up. What's dripping off the truck in the pictures did you blow a hose on the plow?

    Ill probably try to do something with it this week. I always keep snow blowers against the tailgate though. It would be nice to push with out using four wheel drive.

    Thanks, I like it a lot. This is my first plow, I have ever bought/used. I really want to try a wideout though and compare.

    Thanks. Im not sure what that is now that you point that out. I had it sitting at my house and it wasn't leaking. We don't have any snow in the forecast so I took it back to my shop and snapped these pic's. Ill take a look at it.

    How do you like them 4 strokes Toros versus the old 2 cycles? Are those the 87cc models?
