    This is the work truck. I sold the Tahoe with the 7.5 Blizzard, and am now using this baby. Wish I had a big/wide Blizzard for this one, but my partner had this Diamond laying around. It's a little small for this truck, but we are only using it for friends/family and the occasional "emergency" drive-by lot during a big storm or something. Also this one has the 7.3 diesel and is a crew cab with the 8ft bed, so even though it has an extra leaf up front, anything heavier is probably too much! I'll have to see how I like the trip edge, but I already know I'm gonna miss my Blizzard joystick controller while using this crappy touch-pad. Anybody know if I can upgrade the controller?:gunsfiring::gunsfiring:

    Very nice rig!!! You can upgrade the controller with a Meyer SlikStick set-up. All you need is the wires and the joystick. I think they have a kit for it at CPW above. FYI, Meyer makes Diamond plows, so alot of the parts are interchangable

    FYI the touchpad is the upgrade. Going to the Stick is actually a downgrade. I would prefer it though if it was me.

    Taz - Does the pistol grip have the same square connection that the touchpad controller has? Or do I need some type of adapter?

    PlowVA if you have the square 6 pin connector you should be all set if not i think they might have some diffrent adaptors for it.

    Thats a dream truck of mine except it would be a 6ft box, Not a girly color of red and it would have an 810 blizzard hanging off the nose. Good choice though. Can't beat the motor or the truck.

    Sweet truck, if I go to a Ford thats exactly the cab/bed configuration I would go with. What type of accounts do you have?
