    Picked up my 04 crew cab with 58,000 miles, mint condition with Western plow. The plow is for sale and a brand new Fisher HD 8.6 is going on it maybe this weekend.

    Here in PA it is monsooning and I stopped on the drive home to take pictures of the floating dumpsters moved by the high river water.

    Better pics to follow this weekend as I swap out plows.

    Nice buy matt, looks nice. I totally agree with your plow swap. Up in northern maine its been the same weather, pouring rain for like the last two weeks. I'm in the middle of building a new shop and i'm stuck inside doin nothing today. Congrats on the truck bud.

    Now get your logo lettered on that, put some lights on it, and it'll be sweet.

    Looks great. You are making a great choise putting a Fisher on it IMO. Drip edge is way better than trip blade IMO.

    Thanks, guys. I got the Western stuff all taken off last night, nothing 4 beers couldn't help me through. Truck was to go in for lettering Monday, but the transmission lines which were leaking when I got it seemed to have gotten worse, so it'll go in for service first.

    I ordered a nice pioneer full head unit and pre-cut window tint. Currently looking for some chrome step bars to help me in and out.

    The Fisher will be bolted on soon enough.

    Just picked up a 06 2500 HD Xcab with 61,000 on it. I'm undecided on what to put on it. We have mostly blizzard 810s and a couple 9'fishers. It my first 3/4 ton. We run all 1 tons and cab overs. Nice truck. Almost got a 4 door instead of the Xcab. Good luck with the truck.

    they are the 245s but they are almost bald, I do like the look of smaller tires

    Just a quick picture of the work I have doen so far. Took the western off and put on the Fisher, added step bars, cheap but effective, added EZ pass, bolted on my new class 5 Putnam Hitch, installed Sirius, and got new Firestone Transforce AT shoes....

    Looks realy good. That Fisher looks alot better on there than that Western IMO. Why do you have "triangle" that is for a stainles steel plow?
