    Well, I finally decided a few weeks ago that it did make sense to buy a plow- I couldn't justify the cost of a new one, so I did the next best thing- buy a used one in great shape! My new (to me) plow is a 2005 Fisher MMII 8'HD w/Fishstik- plow originally came with the joystick, but I decided to spring for the extra $200 to put in a new Fishstick controller! I got it at a dealer in Vermont, about 20 mins from my house Upstate- quite convenient! I paid $3100 out the door (including install and Fishstik). This plow is EXACTLY the one I've been searching for for the past few months and finally I've got it! The plow is truly in excellent shape! Here's some pics from when I first got it (yesterday afternoon), and a few "after paint" shots (painted it yesterday afternoon too- just the front of the blade where there was some surface rust- no rust anywhere else!)- I touched up the rusted area on the blade (Fisher spec paint), and painted the cutting edge factory spec black- all I need now is a Fisher decal and It'll look just like new! Here's the pics- enjoy! I CAN'T WAIT FOR SOME SNOW!!!

    Looks awesome mkwl!!!!! That bad boy will push some snow. Sounds like a decent deal on the plow. Good job on the paint too.

    Paint is great. Looks great but don't waste the money for the sticker it will just peal off during the first snow. You might think of trying a Teflon shield they work great no snow or ice sticks to it but you got to replace them every couple years to keep them looking new. Paint works but touch up helps prevents rust thru the season....Congrats on your plow....

    Looks good mkwl :drinkup: Did you install anything on the front it looks like it hardly even sags with the plow up. I bet you can't wait until winter now.

    Looks good! Go get yourself a really good Fisher decal like you said. It'll finnish the project off perfectly. I did that with mine and the sticker was fine through the one season that I used it.

    Thanks, the plow is in our barn upstate- I don't really have a place to keep it indoors down here in NJ, I'll take it back in the bed of the truck around the beginning of November or so.

    Thanks, no, I didn't install anything, when I had it in the front end shop this past spring, they cranked up the torsion bars some before they did an alignment on the truck- I'm surprised actually at how little it sagged- I'll still probably put in some kind of ballast when plowing- just for good measure!

    if you want to paint it on it should be simple. Buy the sticker off ebay, then paint a big area where the stickers goes in black, then put the decal over the black paint and paint it all yellow. Once it all dries, take off the decal and there you should have the logo, painted on.
