    I'm looking at buying a 8' stainless steal sno-way. I haven't seen it yet but I do know that it came off a 2006 dodge diesel. Everything comes with it. The controler he explained is a palm held. The seller said he bought it Dec 07. Couple of questions cause this is my first plow and I know nothing about them: What should I look for on the sno-way? Did Snow-way sell more then one version of the 8' stainless steal? ( I see downpressure always BOLDLY advertized. Was that an option ? Or did all the 8's have it on last years model?) Also Is 2500.00 too much for it? Any one have a mount for a 2000 dodge 2500? THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE!

    $2500 would be a good buy in my opinion on a one year old blade. Snoways are awesome, or at least of what I have seen of my new one, let the fluffy stuff fall and then I can tell you for sure. DP was an option on some blades, it is easy to see when you go look at the blade, there will be two lines going to the lift cylinder instead of one. Are you sure you need a different mount? I don't know dodge stuff, but the ford snoway mount goes from 1999 to 2007. When did dodge have a major over haul, was it 06' or 07'?
