    Picked this up yesterday. Its a 2004 F250 5.4 gasser with a 7.5' arctic poly. Not so fond of the arctics but it will do for now. All it needs now is a salter.

    Yea, all we run is arctics on both our heavy equipment as well as trucks in the past.
    Good Luck this winter

    Nothing wrong with the Arctic's once you have them mounted. The wiring is still old style but works fine. They scrape well and seem to stand up to abuse.

    Yeah they work pretty well, ONCE you get them on. Getting them on can be an absolute monster though involving curbs and 2-3 guys for the really nasty ones.

    I use to leave my truck in Drive and play with the jack and rock the headset. Then jump back in before I put it through the garage door. Now I just don't buy Arctic's.
