    I am putting to gether a new truck for next year. It is an 84 dodge w350 crew cab with 4.11 gears a 4spd tranny backing a 440 v8. I am tring to figure out what would be the best plow set up for this truck. I am thinking I want a v plow and I want as large of a plow as I can run. maybe a 9 2 boss If anyone has any recomendations I would appreciate it greatly. also any recomendations for the electrical system and chargeing system would be good as well. I will be running dual batteries with 2 gauge cables, a 200amp altenator with upgraded wirring and an accel ignition coil and Holy 4d pro jection unit

    that sounds like u pretty much have it all settled. i am not a Vplow person i like the blizzard with the speed wings or even the western wideout. just make sure u have enough cooling surface and a good tranny cooler. is it a short bed or long bed?

    I am useing a large 4 core radiator . What is the advantage of useing a snoway with the wings as opposed to a v plow. I am wanting suggestions because the plow setup is what I know the least about. I currently use a western straight blade on my 72 and I get so annoyed with the amount of trail off from the ploww. I know that wings would help but I am going a little different direction as said earlier and I am setting up my crew cab for my primary plow. Most of my plowing is parking lots for apartments and condos. But I also have a few residential drives that are quite long. I hope next season to add to the commercial accounts and have a second driver. he will run my old truck while I run the new one. This will be good if this happens because I will be able to have one full time year round employee.

    they each have there good and there bads. a couple guys on her have wings on there v plows. the longer the wheelbase of the truck the bigger the blade u want. so when u turn the back tire stays in the cleand area. having a huge plow might save u some time but if u cant get it in tight spaces those ull have to shovel or leave which looks bad if u leave it and shoveling takes time. i am a straight balde person because there is alot less parts to break. simplicty in a snow storm is never a bad idea cause when ur going for days with out sleep everything gets harder
