    Well, heres our stuff...

    • 2009 Chevy Silverado 3500HD with Boss 8ft 2in Poly V-Plow
    • 1999 Chevy 2500, with Western 8.5 Unimount (Just sold the 7.5 for this truck ), new 6.0L crate engine.

    • Buyers V-BOX (just got 10-02-09), it has a 1 year old 10.5 HP Intek on it

    We also have 2 snow blowers, i will take some photos, and get model info...

    I know its not much, but this is only our 3rd or 4th year plowing...

    Questions and Comments welcome...

    1. The salter on the way home.
    2. Here it is in the light, from the side.
    3. Heres a pic of the front.
    4. Heres the motor and what not.
    5. Here is the motor after i cleaned it up a little.

    Oh, yea, this salter was sitting out side, and we didnt think it would start, but we put gas in it, pulled a few times, saw their was no spark plug. We put one in, i pulled, and it started right up...

    I was looking at some pics and found some of my snapper, and the dodge we had, but sold last fall... It was a 95 3500, with Fisher Plow (i thuink 8.5 or 9 ft)... It had a Snow Ex 1875 Tailgate spreader on it, which we sold with the truck... :mad::realmad:

    The one where the blower is blowing that was about 1 ft of snow...

    We also had another 94 Ram 2500 which 7.5 ft Western ultramount on it (both at the same time)...

    Yea, it was a good plow truck, but it had the "death wobble"... And right after we sold it (same day, they blew the brake lines. The tranny went out about 2 months later, and then had a small electrical fire... We were lucky we sold it...

    Thanks, you have some nice looking trucks too...

    Just a question, did you guys convert that OBS 99 truck to a 6.0L? If so what year of truck was it out of? Or did you mean 5.7L? Also forgot to mention like everybody else said, nice trucks. That 1 ton definitely needs some help up front, it looks like my yukon lol.

    I'm guessing he ment 5.7, because the 6.0 would be by no means a plug and play deal. The motor mounts aren't even in the same place.
