    Looks new. The other plow confused me for a second. Who is running the V-plow?

    Must be your brothers plow and white truck in the background.

    I think you need a bigger light on your truck wolf.Can you paint right over rust with that stuff or does it have to be primed?

    Yup you can paint right over rust but i would still use a grinder. I had that lightbar custom made. I didn't want a fullsize bar so I had the frame cut down to 39" It's perfect size cause it's right in the middel of a full size and a mini bar size.

    Here's the link for chassis saver http://www.magnetpaints.com/underbody.asp

    No they are actually dollys for our snowmobiles and i figured when I was putting the plow back togeather it would be eaiser to set it on those and line the pins backup. They acually do make plow dollys tho.

    Napa does sell it. I got it from the napa in maynard because my dad has an account there. Ive never seen it at the Napa in chelmsford but I don't like that one and all my stuff comes from the one in maynard. The qrt of chassis saver cost me $42.99 and they also sell reducer for it but I really didn't use it and that cost $8.99 for the big one not sure how much the smaller thing of reducer was.
