    So I bought my truck and plow "new" from the dealer a couple years ago. I got a good deal because they beat the crap out of the plow on their own lot. It has always bothered me that it looks like "I" can't plow and I ran into who knows what. Also thought it would look good if it matched my truck.

    Pics shows before, prepped, and primed with rusty primer.

    A few more, Painted white with Majic tractor paint from TSC with hardener. Last pic shows reflective tape along top of blade. Couldn't get all the dents out, tried my best. Also, got a free Meyer sticker from the Meyer website. More to come.

    Oh, you'll see. I have a few more mods to do before I'm done. I am currently wiring a few led's in my new markers, as well as a few other goodies to make it visible.


    Thanks for the nice words!

    A little update: Painted the angle cylinders white to match, Also got some SAM markers, and started to wire a few LED's for the markers & blade. Last pic is a homemade battery box to power the lights.

    Finished wiring lights today and finally hooked up the plow to my truck. Also added reflective tape to markers ( I took off the SAM stickers). Last pic shows install of wiring. I tried to keep it nice and clean.

    And got to try them out tonight! Lights are supposed to be green and amber, but the amber appear more orange - not red like in the photo.
    All in all I am mostly happy with how it turned out.

    LED's are power just by batteries on Plow side? No connection to truck side? Looks very cool!

    Why not just tap into parking light on headgear for power? Does look cool as hell.

    Yeah just batteries for now. I can always tap into the parking lights later if the batteries don't work out. I like the clean look of it. Also I was worried about pinching of the wires at all the pivot points. I have a quick connect for the power source. They can be run on a single 9 volt as well.

    They do look more orange than red in person. I think the green will help with my case if I ever get pulled over.

    I will try for some better nighttime shots.

    Hell - that 9volt may run those LED's for a long time...

    I hope so. I have 8 aa batteries powering them right now. We will see how long they last.
