    those who go on lawnsite have prolly already seen this.

    hey guys, decided to just go outside and snap some pics. havent had the time to wash it, we plowed early sun. morn and its salt covered. its raining now so to hell with it.

    09 Ford F350 Lariat, Crew Cab, Long Bed 6.4L PSD
    Royal Red exterior, ebony leather interior
    9'2" Boss V blade

    Ill get better/more pics after its washed along with the rest of the trucks and plows on it.

    I took the front valance off before it went to the dealer for plow install b/c i wanted to notch it myself, so i still havent had the time to do that, which is why its not on yet. its got 5 bags of salt in the back for ballast/traction, and it works for ****. prolly need to add at least another 5 bags to get any traction.

    the new motor is great, i just have to get used to a diesel now. this thing pulls like a freight train when the second turbo spools up.

    thanks, its a 9'2" v blade

    i will get pics of the other two trucks up as soon as we get nice weather. and its finals week as well, so ive got finals wed. thurs and friday.

    im the most careful out of my brother and father so thats why im running this beast! besides, we traded my monte in for this so i get this truck. the backup sensors and camera work awesome for when your not sure if there is a mailbox behind you or not. the dump worked really well, my half of the route contained alot of open drives so i had more room to maneuver. and the blizzard would clear a drive in no time at all.

    the overcab lights came stock, i wired up the reverse lights myself via relay and to the aux switches inside the cab. the aux switches are a factory installed option and there are four leads under the dash that you can tap into. the first two provide 30amps, the 3rd is 10 amps and the last one is 15 amps.

    at the bottom of the rear glass, it goes in between cab and bed and up into the cab vents. the crew cab gave me alot of room to get behind the seats and pull back to upholstery to pull the wire through. then it is ran under the kick plates up to the front and under the dash to the aux switch for power. the controller for the light bar is in the center console if i ever need to change flash patterns or turn the alley lights on.

    what do you have run to your switches?

    i hooked up my backup lights to turn on when i put it in reverse, but i also wired them into the aux4 switch. when i flip that on, not only do those reverse lights come on, but also the taillight reverse lights as well, along with the camera, this comes in pretty handy when you want to keep an eye out on whats going on behind you when you may not necessarily be in reverse.

    im thinking about putting some hideaways in next year as well.
