    Decided to paint the plows up a couple weeks ago they turned out really well.

    Cant seem to find any decent pics of the Blizzard before but it was pretty rough.

    I also Just put Timbrens on my Dodge last night (white one) they really do help out alot
    i am very pleased with them!

    Looks great, it always amazes me how far a little paint and sand paper can go

    Looks good!

    Does it seem like Blizzards lose their paint a little faster than other plows? Seems like all the ones I see around town are pretty worn down.

    Well its actually made for sign painting, its very durable and you can roll it or brush it and it flows out really smooth!

    Uh...NO
    Just plug it in a couple of hours before you need it. I put mine on a timer to come on at 4 AM and it works great.
    You might also want to put some anti gel like Stanadyne in there. It really works.

    My buddy puts a bit of gas in his diesel tractor and it runs fine..however I wouldn't do this in my truck. Standyne works perfect, you can buy the small bottles that are good for one fill up. I've been using Standyne for years, never had a problem..

    What year 7.3 is it? You may need glow plugs, however I had trouble with my 2002, and it turned out that the plug fell off the heater in the bottom of the fuel filter housing, I plugged it back in and didn't have any more trouble
