    Have done alot to my truck since last winter. As you know i got the mini edge from stroker, i also pick up shock ext and cab lights from repear last month. I also added reverse lights to my back rack, break light covers, and thanks to deere615 i got towing mirrors. There is alot of stuff on my truck from chicago.

    no problem! about time you upgraded from your 7'6" that thing must have sucked when turning, I had a 8' on my extra cab and when I turned the back wheels would sometimes run over snow.

    I never really notice it jared....i guess last winter it was balls to the wall and straight pushed alot of deep snow. I brought the XV home in the dark....from the little time i had with it, i really had the controls down to a T. Cant wait to use it. I do agree, its a big upgrade
