    Thought I'd post a few pic's of the old rig being used for something other than pushing snow. Anyone else have any ??

    That is a nice looking truck eyesell, does it bother you that the boss mount hangs so low? I guess thats the disadvantage of all plows that have power hitches. Boss plows are nice though.

    Well i don't have any pictures but i used my truck for many things this summer, helping people move, moving large stuff, and landscaping for a few people i know. Also towed my uncles boat from MA to Florida because he does not have a truck as he usually hires someone to move it. Today i had a minor problem that was truck related. I was at my grandparents house mowing their lawn and doing some other work which involved getting rid of large bushes along the driveway. The bushes were half dead and a pain in the a$$ when i plow there. So i get my chain one end goes around the bush and is secured tightly and the other gets wrapped around the tow bar that the trailer hitch attaches to. Throw it in 4 low slam on the gas and out come the shrubs roots and all. Well i did this 6 times for each bush and the 6th time i did not secure the chain to the bush very well so it snapped back and dented the tailgate :yow!: Oh well just have to get it touched up my fault for not making sure the chain was tight.

    Chris, Hate to hear of accidents, but your right what are ya going to do. My plow looks lower than it really is, I was forwarned by my buddy ( who has the same plow ) to watch for curbs. Well ya know, to date I have not hit one, just careful I guess or maybe just Lucky !! :eek:

    what does your camper weigh ??, I'm in my 8th year with the Jayco and am planning on buying a 5th wheel next year, the one I selected has 3 slides but shows a GVWR of 12,000 lbs. Just wondering how the truck pulls it. Do you have a V-10 or the V8.

    Thanks :waving:

    Loaded up 10,500, I have the v-10 and it pulls with no problems at all.
    8.5 mpg at 65 and the camper on the back.
     
  11. This is what the truck gets to pull around when there is no snow to push.
