    Thanks. I wouldn't say bottomed out, but sometimes either the plow or the mount hits the driveway. The worst part is that sometimes there is over 2 feet of slush at the bottom of the drive, and it can be kinda hard to push through. But other than that, it's real simple, just 2 swipes and your done. I did a few extra to make the vid a little longer.

    Yeah, I see what you mean. I think the mount on my truck is a little higher than some other trucks, because the truck is up pretty high. If anything scrapes on the ground, it's usually the plow when I back down something like that. I'm sorry, but I actually kinda lied before because I don't think my mount has ever hit the ground yet. I really like that dodge, which is kinda funny, because I'm basically "an anything but Dodge" type of guy! lol. But this truck was the only decent one I could find, so I ended up buying it. I hope to buy another truck next year, but I think it will be either a Ford, GMC, or Chev. How do you like your ford? It looks pretty sweet.

    Yeah, my truck has some big tires on it. They aren't like oversized or anything, but they are pretty tall if you know what I mean. Yeah, a diesel would be nice, but I just would filling it up for 50 more cents per gallon! Next year, maybe I'll get a Diesel. We'll see. I'm not sure what kind of suspension my truck has, but the guy I bought it from said he had the shocks and stuff upgraded and replaced not to long ago. He said it doesn't have a lift though. I think it needs new shocks again, so we will see what I go with. Maybe I'll get some timbrens too. It doesn't really need them, but it would probably be a little easier on the truck.
