    Hey everyone!!

    I just purchased a new '09 Chevy 1 ton SRW Reg. Cab. I will be putting a V-XT Poly on it, but I have a few questions on what size to get and w/ or w/o wings. We currently run all blizzards and I love the wings on them. But we lost dealer support so im going to a Boss on my truck. It will be doing alot of windrowing and alot of pushing. So my qustions are would you guys run? I would like to beable to keep the wings on all the time if I like them.

    1. 8'2" w/ wings
    2 9'2" w//o wings
    3. 9'2" w wings

    Wings are a must. A 9'2" would be nice but what does it weigh?

    Setup the truck with the right ballast and timbrens, no problem! Especially if you are doing mostly commercial.

    Thanks everyone for the replies!! I take it that you cant run a 9'2' w/ wings down the road?

    9'2'' with wings is a little wide going down the road. The one time I used a 9'2'' with wings I always took them off when going down the road (heavy traffic at the time). In the middle of the night with not much traffic I dont think it would be a problem to leave them on.
