    10 years of plowing and landscaping. But the last year she was getting tired so it was time. Moved a lot of snow in that time.

    Great looking ride Sure is a pretty vehicle.....


    You going to put lettering on it, or just hide in the shadows and keep her stock. ?


    Switching over your existing plow, or upgrading to a new boss ?

    10 years is a good milestone for a plow truck. That new one is going to make you feel like a Jetson....

    That's one thing I wish my truck came with. I'm afraid to put them in now.

    Go for it...I mounted them on my Explorer. It wasn't all that hard...the most time consuming part was staring at them for 2 hrs to make sure they were perfectly straight lol.

    I just think all 3/4 tons look weird without them and I like being as visible as possible.

    I'd want a factory light kit though.

    How do you like the 6.2, GV? I love it so far. MPG is 13+/- average, but that's to be expected. I have a 4 banger Camry for my daily driver.

    Only drove it home from the dealer.Let you know. One thing I'll have to get used to is, they have numbers above the d,r,n,3,2,1 .I guess it fro the rpm's ,not sure why they need both there,

    The 6 speed tranny took a bit to get used too. Lots of shifts. I haven't tried shifting with the buttons yet. I guess that's for towing something heavy???

    Its so you can either manually shift through gears by selecting M and using the button and/or locking out certain gears while towing. Example- set it to 4 and while towing, the tranny won't go past 4th gear no matter how fast you go. Keeps the truck from lugging or constantly shifting from higher gears while towing/hauling.
