    Just picked up my plow this week. Purchased a "used" 7'6" Super Duty. Now I know its bare minimum but the plow was hardly used, the mount/wiring were for my truck, and I got a good deal on it. I'm thinking about some Boss wings but with the price tag of 7 bills, I am going to wait and see how the first push goes without them to see if I think I should purchase them.

    Still need to cut the front air dam along with installing my strobes in the headlights.

    Good looking truck, should be fine, but wings would cover the trucks path better when its at an angle.

    Get the wings. I bought them for my 7'6 Boss and they take it out to 9'4. Makes all the difference

    I would get the wings, a 7'6" is an awful small plow for that big of a truck

    From the pics you need wings. If you turn at all you will be running over your windrow. And it looks like going straight your going to be packing down snow on your passenger side.
    Still a great looking rig. If you want to save money put some Sno-wings on her.

    Well we have had no real snow since December 13th. I have been bored so thought Id do an update.

    I didn't get wings yet, I am keeping an eye out for a good deal or a used set but don't plan on going out buying a new set right now with no snow forcasted. I have been thinking about a backdrag edge on it as I backdrag alot but comes back to I dont want to spend any money on it with no snow.

    I put some more chrome on the truck, and also a picture of my from air dam.
