    I took the old plow off and got the new one on today. It's a big plow, (9ft) but it doesn't seem to sag the truck too bad. I drove home an hour and a half without any overheating either. My transmission ran about 20-30 degrees hotter than normal. The motor was only about 10 degrees above average. Anyway, here's pics of my old plow leaving, and the new plow on the ground and in the air.

    I still need to get a new cutting edge and do some touch up on the head gear. Then I'll be ready.

    Why did you trade plows? What was the size of the old one?

    It was an old 7 1/2 conventional mount fisher that was on the truck when I bought it. Here's a thread and some pics of where I started with the truck......

    I used it for the first time today. It works well. It's a tight fit on a couple driveways that I do though. I'm hoping we get some good cold days so the gravel that I have to do firms up. Overall I'm pretty happy so far. But I think I might go down to an 8 ft next year.

    I dislike on the older MM1s it looks like the headgear is going to fall off when raised. A guy I work with has an older 9' MM1 on his newer dodge and looks this way as did the 97 F350 9'. I understand it is a heavy plow but any rhyme or reason to this. Where I work we have 2 9' MM2s and they don't do this. See 3rd pic down for what I am rambling on about.
