    here is what i have for the total package of the "GM Xtreme Plow Prep Package." I had to keep a lot of the descriptions very simple so people that have no idea what i'm talking about (pretty much everyone) will be able to stay interested in the presentation. Here is what is included in this package...... how much would you pay for it? Would you pay $1k? for this whole package? It is offered on ALL models of GM 3/4 and 1 ton pickups in all body styles and engine choices. Honestly i think that $1k is one hell of a deal for all of that :) let me know what ya'lls think.

    - Solid Front Axle
    - Universal Plow Wiring
    - H.D. Trans, Motor & Power Steering Coolers
    - Stainless Steel Brake and Transmission Lines
    - Weather Sealed Backup Camera
    - Manual Front Diff Locker
    - Push Button Drive to Reverse When Plow Is On
    - Reverse Lights In Bumper
    - Locking Rear Differential
    - Dual Alternator
    - Dual Battery
    - Linex Coated Frame & Bed
    - Whelen Strobe Harness
    - Switch Box Knock Out Panel

    I would pay 1k for all that in a truck without even thinking about it. You should also include maybe a universal salt spreader harness as well

    Considering that looks to be about a $5,000 package $1k would be a steal.

    I would gladly even pay that.....i just wanted it to be comprehendable to people watching the presentation considering that the current packages are only $300 or so tops

    looks like a pretty good list. My only question, do you really think front and rear lockers is necessary? ive never had a traction problem so im just curious.

    Looks like a good list Mike! I'd probably pay 1K for that package, my truck has the plow prep package, but some of those items you outlined not included in the package I have would sure be a nice addition.

    Looks good. But with GM on strike you better make it a FORD!
