    I am currently plowing 8 accounts with a 1983 Chevrolet 3/4 ton 7'6" Meyer with home made wings. I am looking at selling this truck after this season and putting a plow on my 2002 F-350 Crew Cab Single Rear Wheel. Any suggestions? I was thinking about maybe a Snow Dogg V-plow? I was leaning towards the 8' blade with wings but it would cost the same to just go with the V-plow. I was hoping to stay well below $4,500 and go brand new, or maybe a left over or demo if I could find a deal.

    i think this is a good idea, i use my 03 crew cab 250 single wheel, gas motor.

    its not great for thight places but it has been reliable and works well

    The majority of what I have to do is country driveways. I do one parking lot in town, and then one other smaller business parking lot that only takes 3 or 4 swipes. Mine is a 7.3L Powerstroke but it runs great in the winter, knock on wood...

    If you were not so far away I would be interested in the old Chevy (wrong brand, but it will push snow) when your done with her....

    Would like to see a picture of your homegrown wings, was thinking about making some for mine, just no idea were to start since mine is a poly blade.

    As of now the Chevy should be sold come spring, that's a big should because they guy said he wants it but has not put any money down on it yet. I will take a picture of the wings this weekend and post them. I have made 2 different sets, the first set I bolted on, bad idea because when I would get to those big drifted driveways I couldn't take them off fast enough, so the second set I made so that it was held by 2 pins on the side and one pin in the front basically.
