    I have a 2003 Dodge Diesel 4x4 Heavy Duty Quad and would love a Blizzard 810. I am located in Ontario Canada. Can anyone give me a recomendation for a good price of what to pay or where to gob (looking at new or new last years model). Blizzard online calculator doesn't show my truck options which I find crazy. I have seen blizzard plows on diesels but never close enough to notice which model - speedwing or 810. My sticker on inside of drivers door says Front 5200 Rear 6000
    Anyone running my truck with a blizzard and if so which model? Are you happy?
    With the us doller lower I could go across the border but would have to find out what the duty / customs procedures would be. I would think then I would not be able to have it installed.

    you will be fine with an 810, go across and have them install it and just put it in the back of the truck when they're done, or put it on a trailer or something

    O5 Ram Quad , Cummins. I run an 810, wish it was an 8611 Lopro. No issues with the 810
    Go see Jerre in Erie Pa. Lots of guys from Ontario go see him. If you leave the States at 12 am you probally wont have any issues at the border with duty's owed. JMO

    Jerre in Erie Pa - is he a member on this forum, cause I'd get a price then.

    btw - I got a price from a guy around here that is a dealer. $6140 not installed and that is plus that. thought it was a bit high

    thats for an 810

    Not running that truck, but there's no reason you can't. I have a couple PSD's that are running that 8611 LP's without problems.

    I'll second the Jerre's vote. And if you want the plow to be easily field repairable and strengthen the few weak spots Blizzards have, he's the guy. Not to mention, if you buy from him, you have 24 hour technical service a phone call away.
