    Nice pictures! Seems like a good storm. Question about your wings: Do you ever run into curbs, and have a problem bending or breaking them?

    No problems with them I love them. I clean curbs no problem the poly edges on the wings flex so there fine.

    Looks like a good chunk of snow. More then I like.

    You don't want to be hitting curbs with Western wings. They are weak and we reinforce all of ours.

    How do you reinforce your wings?

    Looking at your 7th picture, those horizontal piece's on the back of the wing, we close those in with flat steel. You have to bend it around the bracket as it goes to the back of the plow. Kind of hard to explain. I will try and get a pic monday but I bet I forget by then.

    That's all. On the other set we welded a piece in between those 2 brackets and it has worked well also.

    On my personal truck I never had to put anything on the wings. I guess if you own it and have to pay to repair it you treat it a little better. Things wings are on employee driven trucks. One guy broke the wings the second night out.

    Yea mine are on my personal truck so I'm definantly more cautious with my own truck. Still a good idea though if I ever get bored
