    I purchased my first snow dogg plow last year and I loved it.

    So on my new truck i decided to add another one to the fleet. I didn't know but they changed the design this year. Looks badass should throw the snow good!

    Looks really good. How much taller is the out side than the inside?

    Nice looking setup. Is the passenger side wing wider then the driver side? What size is the plow?

    Its nearly identical. The truck has 2 horns that come out with a small bar in the back that goes side to side. The headgear on the plow has guides with the pins in it. The horns go into the "guides" and you flip the pins then you are done.

    Do you find mounting the plow to be difficult? Friend of mine bought their expanding plow and his only complaint was mounting it was pretty difficult if the ground isn't level. He loves the plow though and for the price I have been looking at them more and more. Have owned 2 of their salters and we have been pretty impressed.

    Not sure if you were asking me or the OP but after having Fisher's that were very tempermental if the ground was uneven or if the plow settled in after a storm, this plow is much easier to mount. The Jack that is provided makes it very easy to adjust the height of the plow if it settles. If the pins don't engage, a few turns of the jack and it pops right in. I've had 1 time where uneven ground wouldn't allow the passenger side pin to engage, I got the driver side in, lowered the jack so it was off the ground, turned the wheels of the truck to the other side (crazy but it worked), then jacked it up again and the pin went in without issue.

    The wings are both the same size in height, total of 37" high outside and 29" inside.

    Its a great plow, very durable, fast, and easy to put on. I find all plows seem to be the same to put on unless you have the older generations.

    The bike is my baby, sad to say but yesterday was probably my last ride of the season. Its a 2001 HD superglide sport, 1450, all blacked out, and lots of mod. Very powerful bike! I put about 5000 miles on it this summer and I'm going to miss it!

    plowguy43, did you ever end up putting grease nipples into the center pin of your plow? Id assume that what the wholes are for?

    Also your truck ever get hot running the plow on the highway? My 2006 doesnt but my 2007 dump does. Maybe the plow was to high but she over heated!

    No, I guess those holes can have grease put in them using a need nose tip (or something along those lines) on a grease gun. There is a guy who posted about it in the Snowdogg forum as a response to my question.

    My truck doesn't overheat at all, it carries this plow better than any straight blade I've used actually.

    On your 07 / 6.7, you may need to put the truck in "snowplow mode" for the additional cooling needed with the plow on. The 6.7 runs hotter than the older 5.9's-

    http://www.cumminsnewsletters.com/td/td28_snow.html

    It states that having an 07 you may have to have the truck flashed to run the Snowplow Mode "Owners of 6.7L Turbo Diesel engines built prior to model year 2008 can receive the snow plow mode capability by requesting the J35 software flash update at your local dealership"

    I am looking at that plow and a western mvp. Is the snow dogg a pain to put on? That is the biggest complaint that i hear.
