    Hello all! :waving: Just signed up after buying my 1st plow. I have an 04 Chevy 2500HD and a 8' Curtis. Now I just need to but the two together. I'll be posting and reading here a lot more often. :)

    OK, installing the mount has become more of a task than I could handle. It appeared easy, but when I got under the truck and started bolting it up, I found myself struggling. Do any of you Rhode Islanders know a good place that will install a used Curtis plow? I'm going to try calling the dealer in Warwick tomorrow to see if they will do it. The guy wasn't so friendly when I stopped in looking for bolts though so who knows.

    I have used MPs in West Warwick. They have been great to me - but I don't know if they work on Curtis plows.

    I think Tri Power is a Curtis dealer, but don't know if they will install a used one.

    yea, that's the Warwick dealer I'm going to call. I heard of this guy, but I don't knwo much about him. I guess he does a lot of used plow sales.

    I don't like him. He's shady and charges REDICULOUS prices. Oh, and if you buy a "complete" plow package from him and he doesn't have the wiring harness, he's gonna splice into your factory harness. :realmad:
