    19 for the truck. They started out at 21k


    Thanks for the compliments guys. I am thinking I am going to hang a meyer off of it. Got phone calls made but nobody seems to want to get me the pricing.

    19 seems high but I guess if you're happy with it thats all that matters

    You should be able to get a very good deal on a meyer at this time of the year. What size plow are you going to put on it? Keep us updated.

    Nice truck JP:drinkup: Is it a 6.0 or the 8.1?? Very good price as well.

    When I was plow shopping a Meyer Lot Pro 8ft was about 5,000 installed. The 7.5 wasnt much cheaper. If you got a dealer close, a Dogg will run you alot less than a Meyer. I paid 3800 installed for my 8 footer. A 7.5 should be around 3400

    Thanks guys. I was looking at the meyer. Waiting on a call from a dealer here now. I was thinking 8 footer.

    Tom I was looking at the dogg as well, but all of our parts are for meyer. We have been putting money into getting back up pumps and parts. We have 4 of us that run them here and are going in on it as a group so we all have what we need if the occasion should occur.

    Sounds good JP. Just keep in mind the new Meyer plows run the E58H systems, and none of the 47/57/60 parts will work. They changed alot on them. And now they are going away from that set up all together and gearing more towards the Monarch style pump like the Dogg and Boss run. I saw a few brand spankin new Meyers a few weeks ago, and the pump is up next to the driver's side headlight with just a mess of exposed wires, etc. I hope they are going to address that and move them. But the lift ram isnt going to be inside the pump anymore. Then really none of the spare parts you got will work, lol. Unless you got parts for newer plows. Not trying to talk you out of the Meyer, just want to make you aware of all the changes they have made

    Not a problem JP:drinkup: Just wanted to make you aware of the changes. I think Meyer may be releasing a stainless blade soon too. There is a post here of a guy in Ohio trying one out. I will look for it
