    mines great, I would look into electric fans as I am going to this up coming winter. I got a burnt valve a few months ago and had to get the heads rebuilt, the machine shop said it was do to overheating because of the plow. also I've been told to get some extra gauges just to keep an eye on things (trans temp, oil temp, ect.) other then that it plows great
