    This is what I ordered because I believe this set up will work best for me. I'm asking what YOU would buy if you had 10k

    I was debating on that as well but I have some tight drives I gotta do. I might get some wings later on

    Well 10K doesn't go to far these days. Maybe a live edge pusher.

    A winter off in Jamaica.

    Add another 0 and we can talk. $10K doesn't even touch what I want\need.

    yeah, for small stuff maybe.

    $10k doesn't make up for the down payment for most any machines these days, truck down payment, heck a plow and good v box can cost that much installed or more.

    I'd buy a new plow and a nice snow blower. If I had any extra I'd either put it in the bank or advertise.

    You guys are legit lol but to be fair to me ....this will be my first plow on a truck
    My brother and I have been doing residential clients for years and we have finally pulled the trigger and got with it. I kinda figured that 10k would be about normal for outfitting a truck with equipment
