    My wife and I went to Annapolis MD (the state capitol) today. It was 78 degrees outside we had seafood for lunch; New England Clam Chowder, Maryland Crab Cakes, and the Oysters were about half the size of a tennis ball. I ran into the Governor (literally) And this is what I came home with.:D

    Excellent pics. It looks like a very well designed plow. It also looks like it will last for many years to come. I knew last year when I first saw the Pro Plus that there had to be wings for it, but the dealer had no info, even though he had one of the first Pro Plus plows.

    Good luck with your new tool!

    As I said to EZ last night, looks awesome! Good luck with it! What other plows were you considering and what made you go with the Western? Great choice though! How come your snowplow lights seemed to be angled down so much, or you just didnt align them to your liking yet? EZ LOL! Mike :drinkup:

    I still think your cool!!

    Actually EZ, I was actually a little annoyed with you this morning because I had been planning on posting pics for about 3 weeks now. I was just waiting for my install appt. today. So what do ya say we just call it even?

    Wings? $325.00 for the set.

    Thanks guys! I really appreciate all your good words.

    Mike 97 SS, I was a Meyers man for years. After being on this site for sometime, I decided to keep up with the industry standards. I needed a change. (Thanks a lot guys, you've cost me a bundle)
    I really wanted the plow Pelican has, the Viking, the problem is the closest dealer is 3 hours from me and that could lead to big issues if I had a break down. I was actually in a Western dealer pricing a Protech Pusherbox. Out of curiosity, I asked him how much a Poly 8 1/2 for my truck would be. I was going to put an 8 1/2 Poly Meyer on my truck. When he showed me the Pro Plus, and I picked my jaw up off of the floor, I knew right away this was the plow I was going with. Pictures don't do this thing justice. It's an absolute BEAST! Western out did themselves this time. As far as the snow plow lights, no I haven't gotten a chance to adjust them. They are one of the cons of this unit! The Sabers that my Meyers offered are a much, much better light!

    Again, thanks all for the comments and especially a big thank you to member JustUsDe for hooking me up with S&S Auto Performance in Annapolis! I got an 8 1/2 and Timbrens for less than my original quote for an 8 with no Timbrens.

    Thanks,
    Marshall

    P.S. - This is going to be my weekend project...
