    Well, this is my 07 Dodge Snow Chief with a Hiniker Poly 8' blade....I'm making a backblade (more on this later) and I just had a Buyers spreader delivered...first new truck I've ever owned....otherwise it's been the old clunkers. Cheers!

    Just the plow prep package. The one I use is also a snow chief, but I had the stickers taken off before we picked it up.

    Awesome....I was out with the truck about 6 hours...no issues whatsever...I do like the way the truck handles with or without the plow on....I have about 60 drives that are done with the skidsteer and tractors, I do the commercials and a couple drives with the truck. I think the backblade will speed up the resi's alot though....it's really nice cause you just rinse out the rubber floor when it's all mudded up....

    I thought about taking off the stickers but it pissed off a boss I have so it's gonna stay on for now.....The plow prep package is nice....have you noticed any problems with lights dimming if your using the windows or kick in the fan? I haven't yet but a buddy running the same truck had it happen.....

    You never gonna get a big enough alternator to get away from dimming lights

    Yep...plus employee pricing with lifetime powertrain warranty was enough to sell it for me....little over 21k...I am certainly happy with it....26k on it already and no issues....i pulled trailers most of the summer with it.

    07.....the floor is a full rubber covering...or at least that's what I thought it was....whatever it is, it's great for cleanup...just rinse it out....:)

    humvee, i dont like dodge but that is really sharp but i already said that.
    all my trucks have a vinyl floor very nice.

    i have a hard on for the hummer ht3 p/u.i built my own and with the v8 its at 40000. the main thing that scares me is if the brand gets sold or shelved, that would really suck. oh well thats what happens lol

    Whats wrong with the plow?

    Thats a good looking setup.

    The GM/Dodge dealership runs a regular cab Snow Chief with a Western V on it to clear the lot.

    Jealous? lol, j/k.....I like, it works well, just like the rest of the Hinikers I've owned...I owned a couple Bosses and Westerns but they sucked for dealer support around here so this is what I got...

    Thanks. I'm trying to build my fleet around the red/black theme so I don't know what I'm gonna do when I start looking at my JD's.....or my skids.....oh, so many decisions.
