    Hi everyone, I have been lurking for a couple of weeks soaking in all the information I can on snow removal. I am a used car dealer (I know) in northwest Missouri. For the past few years I have been waiting to trade for a good plow vehicle with the intention of using it on the car lot and some personal use. A month ago I took a '93 Bronco in on trade which should work just fine. Picked up an old Meyer a couple days ago and need to wire and plumb it and it should be ready to go. I wanted this this for personal use only, but in the two days of owning the blade I have been approached with 7 residentials and 3 businesses if I want them. I told them I might need to get it installed, see if it works (supposed to), and learn how to run it first.

    Snow Plowing.... yet another 'hobby' I seem to be immersing myself in.

    Looking forward to learning all I can from this site!

    I haven`t checked into insurance as I am unsure if I will be taking on outside jobs. I am in Maryville, what are you looking for?

    Don't have any Rangers right now, although we usually have one like you are looking for.

    I do 3/4s, mostly Duramax's and Cummins.

    I've got it hung and getting the hang of it. We got plastered yesterday and it drifted overnight. Nothin' fancy and definitely not pretty but it works like a champ and gets the job done!

    that looks like a pretty good setup you got there. you at archer's? you don't have much ground to cover if you're just doing the car lot. i know i wouldn't want to plow around any of those trucks you've got there. you guys have got some nice ones.

    I slapped this thing on before this storm hit. I am going to work it until things don't need cleared and then address the fitment.
