    Just picked up my new poly blade. I'll take a few pics this weekend. I have a 2005 GMC serria 1500 with Timbrens. Didn't have to turn the torsion bars, but I think I will to get that extra inch or so. The hydraulics are awesome, fast and to the point. Drove home on the highway and the temp gauge floated back and forth from a little under 210 to 230. Questions:

    1. Do most drive with the plow up and straight or up and turned?
    2. How fast do most drive on the highway? I was doing 55 and it seemed to be fine.

    Thanks, anyother little tricks with the boss would be appreciated.

    I drive with the plow about 5 inches or so of the ground...usually straight. Your supposed to have it angled to the right.

    I do this so air can get to the radiator.

    I do 70. lol.
