    Box wings are ok. Buyers pro wings are better for the cost. We did a trial 1 year with 2 Plows. 1 box, 1 buyers pro. Installed more buyers pro the next year. Scrapped the box wings.

    But, we don't do resi's, just big open lots. Curbs are not a box wings friend.

    I woudl reccommend measure 2 pieces of flatstock across from rib to rib. then you weld those 2 pieces of flatstock to the mount and weld the whole thing to yoru ribs, spot welding across the mold board at most.

    this will put hte force on your ribs which are stronger than yoru mold board. its also a pain welding something flat to something curved

    or if you want to get fancy like one other guy on this forum, instead of 2 flat stock pieces going across, have a piece on one side, and a piece on the other with a 1" eye hole connecting them. a hinge. then you can tuck your wings behind the plow, rather than compleetly removing and hauling to yoru truck in the snow. you could even put hydrolics on them to open and close from the truck.

    or do like some do and permanently weld them to the ends of your plow. i like being able to get them off, for driveways. some dont need to.
