    I know you guys can apprecciate it more then my wife. I'm all pumped up and say, babe! babe! i got it ! come check out my new plow! She's awesome! she tries her best to look excited but i know she could care less. Can't blame her really.

    Anyway, I got the sub for 3,000. It has 80,000 miles on it and is really clean,its a 99. It was some kind of airport vehicle.

    Got the boss for 4,400, that includes tax and instalation

    Nice set up. Now beef up the front end. Timbrens is a start. Maybe some HD shocks or air shocks as well.

    I was also wondering about storage and upkeep. I'm going to store it outside. My thought was to spray the s##t out of the truck and plow with fluid film then throw a tarp over the plow.

    This sound about right?

    That would help. When I have had to keep mine outside tho I never used a tarp.

    The number one thing that helps keep em in good working order is washing both after each use then using FF again, and again.....

    I would by 5 gallons at a time and get a sprayer if I were you. Cheaper than buying it by the can/case.

    I have 8 boss plows ranging from 8 years old to present.
    I have left all of my plows out for most of their life. Now the sport duty 7'6" that goes on my personal-personal truck Gets babied sometimes like now and stays in the front of my garage. One of the many good things about having a 3 car garage.
    All the rest are outside in the shops' yard.

    All we do is grease the cylinders and put dielectric grease in the electric connections. NEVER had a problem! Some of the plows are clearly faded a little bit compared to my new ones. never any major problems from keeping them outside though
