    Finally got my truck back with the new Salt Dogg 2 cubic yard spreader and a new back window that got smashed by the company installing it . I also had Firestone air bags plus Timbern blocks installed to help the ride and now she glides like a Cadillac down the highway. I'll have to get some more photos with the plow on once it starts snowing.

    Looks sweet man. Have you used the poly spreaders before? Do you prefer them over steel if so why?

    Truck looks great.

    Those salters sit really high. Are you going to put some extra lighting on it?

    Hey man you will love that spreader if you use salt. We have 2 of them and they work grate. I run all salt but my buddy has one and runs sand and salt and it works pretty good. Just empty it after every time because they freeze up very easily.

    I have a 8 foot stainless steel and now a poly salt dogg. First time trying a poly and I can't wait to see how she holds up, my steel one is heavy but has still going strong into its 8th year, plus it's made me a lot of money and I love money.LOL

    Did you build the frame like the suggest to stop it from shifting and support the salter??

    You can keep salt in it overnight if its not wet. I've kept a yard of treated in it for most of the winter after a storm.

    just bought the same salter.....wiring is all in.....will not be able to actually set the salter in the truck until leaf season is over.... I have a 4 head LED amber light bar coming for the back of the salter.... Might add a brake light as well... I have 2 LED floods to install as well...

    There is a bracket installed at the front of the bed to stop the salter from sliding around.

    Ya the Timberns are in the front but I still haven't hooked the plow up with them installed to see the difference. Can't wait to smash the snow around and show it who's BOSS. LOLtymusicwesport

    You might want to think about making a rubber skirt for the back of the truck to help with the salt from flying and hitting the bumper and other areas. I made one from my tailgate and truckcraft spreader and they work great. Looks great, good luck this year

    You'll like it. I think the first time you fill that Dogg with salt you will add them or air bags in the rear. I know I did.

    Hey I had Firestone airbags installed at the same time as the Timbrens can't wait to load them up.
