    I want to thank everybody that helped me with the install and problems on my new boss vxt 8.2 poly. A few pics for every body. I have put tons of work in both of the trucks in the pictures getting them ready for the season. Next year they are off to paint and graphics.
    Thanks, Ron

    Let me guess, the other blade is a 7' 6" Western Unimount with Pro Wings?

    Try 8

    No that is an 8 footer with wings. I have a 7-6 ultra on my 01 silverado. Another 8.2 steel v on my other 89 gmc and a 6 footer meyers on my 99 jimmy. I have to say Boss is my favorite and in the future that is what i want to run on all my trucks. Thanks, Ron

    you might need to adjust your plow on level surface. its about 1" off the ground at tip

    When i tightened everything it was on level ground. Is there another way to adjust? There is a crown in the driveway. Thanks, Ron

    Fill the truck with the ballast you will use, find a level surface and make sure the V blade is flat in all positions.

    If it is not, there is a thread regarding VXT adjustment...........a quick search should find it.
