    A boss power V- XT would look pretty good on the front of that thing.

    Both of those trucks are super nice. What is your fuel mileage like on the Duramax?

    The front is just the stock 6" lift. Pretty heavy duty though

    Have you got a driver for a 2nd truck and work for it ? If so just add another one.

    Beautiful truck. And that's coming from a ford guy.
    I'd put junior to work with the plow to pay off the truck he now has. And get a new one for your truck.

    No on the other driver......

    I only have 10 accounts that I am paid for and 5 accounts that are for free.
    Old people in town = the 5 accounts. At least they are all in one area.

    Let me rephrase that, 5 accounts, elderly, means paid in cookies, DD gift certificates, fruit baskets, I even get a chocolate cake from one lady every time it snows………not bad.

    Thought about that. My son is still in school. What I pay to send him there, he's not missing a minute of it.

    PLUS>>>>> that leaves no fun for me!!!!!!!!

    Hey, if I can get up early to plow snow, I think your son can get up early to plow, When I was in high school, if school wasn't canceled, I got up early to plow, but now college starts at 9:30, so I have plenty of time.
    But I do agree on wanting fun timepayup

    Although I never plowed with a lifted truck but I would imagine if the drive angle are compromised even a little you may have issues of thing wearing out much faster.
