    had to weld in all new pivot points, and just put new cylinders on it as well, not pictured though....i decided not to run the plow lights on the grey f-250...

    Did you break the mounts on the poly plow?

    No lights either... Make it hard to drive at night or do you just have the plow really low? Looks good. I need to make my pin mounts like yours as mine are starting to rust out. Where did you get the sleeves from or did you make them? Looks good!

    the ford lights are high enough to see over so it actually works out well....the pin mounts were rusted and worn out.....i machined the sleeves and also the boxes where the pins mount....

    Nice job man. I feel that when you make your equipment look nice you feel good about going to work every day and it keeps you motivated also.

    Question for ya about the pro wings. I just put a set on my western pro plow and i'm debating on weather or not i should put markers on the outside edge of the wings. do you find that you hit stuff more often?

    i think overtime you just get used to the wings being out wider. It wouldnt be a bad idea to put markers out their though. I have never taken my wings off, so you could just move your oem markers out.

    Are the rubbers on the wings supposed to be flush with the end of the cutter bar like that? I just put a set on mind and put the bottom edge overlapping a little bit. Which way is right?

    on my smaller truck they overlap, but i have not noticed where any snow is going through the small gap.....and it was much easier to mount without making an overlap.

    Thanks. I might look into that on my plow. I run a C 8.5 w/ wings and the rubbers overlapping make them a pain to put on and off. I like the weld job on the mounting brackets too. I might look into doing that also. I just stripped and repainted mine this summer so I might wait to move them.

    in the instruction manual they say to overlap the rubber. I have over lapped both our sets. But you could just butt them up against cutting edge. Really up to the installer

    the boxes, and the pins and what not are such a time consumer to make. I bet with fabrication time, on just the pivot point i have about 10 hours. But it was the first one. I saved the template i made so i can make them easier next time. it took about an hour to actually cut out the old boxes and get it ground out enough to weld in the new boxes
