    Does anyone have a solution to the problem of salt spray covering the passenger side of your plow truck?

    I have a 8.5 foot blade, and it seems a lot of spray as you drive gets carried off the plow extending beyond the truck. Maybe fender well extenders?

    Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks!

    Yep. After every storm (within 24 hours) I take the truck to a wash. Hose everything down from plow to gate. Bubble brush. Rinse. Costs about $10. I'd say it gets 90% of the crud off of it. I see these guys running around a week or two after and the trucks have layers of salt on em. I don't get it man......trucks and plows cost way too much money for that treatment.

    I also fuel the truck before washing it as well. That way, the next storm, all I gotta do is unplug and go.
