    actually I've had it about a month but just got the sideboards done. It is almost exactly the way I want it.

    I am guessing a 9' fisher since he has minute mounts on it.

    I have a 9' X-blade for it. Thanks for all the compliments. Now all I have to do is lights.

    Take good care of my truck! If you should want to sell in a year, you have a buyer! It should be a great workhorse for you in the coming years. Good luck!

    I haven't decided yet. I was thinking either a full LED Freedom lightbar or one of these on the leading edge of the cab guard.http://www.911ep.com/products/tdwl.asp Then some else for the back.

    fergy, what did something like that run, you bought it new? I was/still looking for a F550 with ex cab or 4 door dump, freking ALL Xls around here, who wants to spend 30-50k on a manual window/locks? I havnt even seen em on ebay. All i want, is the non plastic front grill, the nicer wheels, mirrors that are heated/power and have blinkers like my f350, and a non crapo interior with SOME features. EVERY one around here new or used is an xl:dizzy:

    What'd the truck run you out the door or what are your payments if you don;t mind me asking? I'm looking at the same setup and color with a 10' or 11' dump body.

    That is one sweet truck. Can I just ask why you went with the Xblade and not the MC series? Just wondering. Good luck with that sweet rig. J.

    I had the x from my chevy, and with bairly a season on it I couldn't see buying a new plow. If I did it would have been a 9 1/2 xtreme vee
