    Hi Tim, truck looks awsome! might have a hard time backing up at night with the truck cap though... at least my buddy had troubble. other than that looks good.
    Welcome btw. i have always wanted to go up north! this summer hopefully!

    thanks

    thanks for the welcome ....ya I thought about removing the cap for the winter months
    I've been looking at driveways in my area and I noticed most will have to be back bladed (does this cause problems) then pushed on to front lawn....
    What about damage to lawns either by blade or tires is it the plowers responsibility to repair in the spring
    Thanks

    my dad had a cap and he took it off for the summer then put it back on for the winter to keep the snow out... but he does not plow with that truck. there is a company that makes backdragging blades for snow plows. most res's will need to be backdragged around the garage doors. i dont think it should cause any damage to the truck or plow... just dont let the snow build up or if it does take a coupple off trys at it. about the lawn damage i am not sure i dont handle that stuff. i think in the contracs says you have to let the home owner know within x hours or somthing like that... someone will chime in and let you know. so are you still looking at trucks or did you get that one? looks good anyway.

    danggg that truck looks great for its age. very important check the front rain drip rail of the top of the cab for rust and the cab supports floors rockers
