    thanks

    You think that the plows would come with this what a pain in the ass I guess it was an after thought that the designer did not expect. We also had the problem of snow being channeled into the air intake had to get covers for the front grills air cleaner element would ice up.

    Thanks for the reply

    Carefully monitor the transmission temp with the grille covered. Dont rely on the gauge in the dash either. Its not accurate.

    I thought the same... I forget what I paid for the deflector, but it was waaaaaay too much considering the price of the plow. It's not like they were scraping parts together to get these things out the door for $3K or something... On top of that, the center deflector is forever ripping out - I know others have this issue as well... I just had my plow down at the dealer (for some **** I should have know better about), and he repaired it again while he had it - He's done it 2 or 3 times, and I've done it 2 or 3 times. Tried washers, larger washers, stacked washers, tightening the connection, leaving it loose, whatever... This last repair lasted 1/2 an hour of cleanups before ripping out. :laughing:

    Luckily - that is the only thing about the plow that isn't totally bomb proof.
