    First year with a plow on this truck so I thought I would take a picture with the summer shoes on. Snow is coming soon, excited for the DXT!

    looks really good. What did the DXT set you back? My dealer quoted me $5500 for a vxt 9.2 and $4800 for a 9ft straight blade installed. I know about the trip edge but is there any other things different on the Boss v-plows? Thanks.

    thanks for the price check. I'm trying to decide on a v-plow. Is there any other differences between them? Does anyone else know maybe? Thanks.

    The DXT has the full moldboard trip and the trip edge, which is awesome. Also, the flared wings are awesome for plowing roads and long driveways because after the first 3-5 snow storms, the wings are high enough that they can throw the snow over the banks on the sides, making room for more snow. You can really stack with the V-plow as well, in parking lot corners, and intersections where you have to pile the snow high, they are great because you can push and push and push to the sky. - Scottie

    Thank you for the answering. You have the VXT 9.2 now right? How do you like it? I have a boss 8ft straight on my f-250. I am probably going to go with the VXT 9.2 on this.

    If you can spare the extra $350-400 I would suggest the DXT. I had a similar dump truck that I had a 9'2" boss v flat top on and hit a water main cover going less than 15mph right at the corner of the cutting edge and bent the wing, the A-frame, and pin. It would have been avoided if I had the DXT. Cost me $550 in parts to fix the a frame and pin. With the extra weight of the truck and maybe a large salt spreader in the back like I had doesn't help the cause but I think spending the extra money now would be worth it. Plus I would think you could get that money back out of resale. Just me .02....

    Plow price?

    Just wondering where you purchased this plow from? I was quoted $6500.00 would love to get it at that price. Thanks

    Ok I got the 9.2 DXT installed today. it all looks good except for one concern. When I angle the wings toward the truck it sits about 4 inches from the ground. I see others driving in that position maybe with other v-plows. This thing is heavy I'm squatting a little up front.
