    Thanks guys! It better. I live a little north of Joplin, about 8 miles and it's just flurring. My mom lives on the south end of Joplin and says it's like a blizzard down there but not sticking to the roads quite yet.

    1040 sand ballast. Then I have my spreader and about 600 worth of melt in there for now. The garage door in my shop was dripping FREEZING cold water on me so i decided to stop there. Usually it's loaded until i can't load anymore. I would say my gross as it sits right now is around 8800lbs.

    Tulsa isn't too far! I really like the fisher. I can only compare it to an old western cable operated, however. It takes all of 1 minute to hook up, the head lights are great and it looks great!

    yeah ur set-up looks great on ur truck, do u ever find that the new fisher lights can of block ur vision? I have the same truck and a fisher hd, it seems to me that the lights do block some vision!

    I don't notice any blockage. I just looked at our forecast and we've been downgraded to 2-4 :cry: But really, as long as I get to push I don't care!!

    Well it looks like you got dry sloted, but u have to watch the upper level disturbance out to ur west! Just look at ur radar, should be snowing better now! Thats where you will get ur 2-4 from, also watch the temps you need 32 or below for it to stick on surface areas!
