    I had mine back on this past weekend for about 4inches of powder/slop. I wasn't bad pushing. The bad part was I had my truck all put back together, tailgate on, brighter reverse lights taken off, balast put away and the blade all cleaned up really nice. And I did it again. I cleaned the blade and put it away but they are talking snow rain snow tommorrow. This sucks. I have the tailgate off but I am not putting the reverse lights on or the balast. The plow maybe? If it is worth it.

    So far they're great! I've got a set of Moto Metal 951's they will be going on at the end of the week. Stock tires will be back on the stock rims for winter use... I guess I'll find out tomorow how they do in snow and plowing, even though I am still hoping that it is rain!!

    your plow took a beating man, what size are the tires, do you have any rubbing issues with the plow on there

    Looks a lot worse than it is, simple wash/wax and it would look new again:redbounce

    Tires are 285/75/16 pro comp Xterrains, no rubbing at all with some cranking

    Just calling for rain here in PA. Put one plow in storage but kept the other out just in case. Been getting ready for the mowing and mulching season. I don't need any more snow.

    If we could get a solid week with no snow and no freezing temperatures, we could make some ground on cleanups, fertilizing, and landscaping. But hell, snow blows that idea!:rolleyes:

    I was joking with my wife this morning that my dad is having the last laugh as his funeral is today. God bless him, he had a weird sense of humor and will be miss dearly. :salute:

    Hey Snowbrdr, where did you get that cool hazard light on the top of your truck? Does it alternate back and forth? How much are they?
    What a mess this storm is going to be!! We won't get it as bad as you but I still have the blade on the old Blaser so I'm good to go! Let me know what your totals are come Friday!
    PS: nice rig!!!

    All we have been getting is rain from this storm. If it was snow, we'd have close to a foot on the ground right now.
