    Yes it was a meyer!

    Just got done customizing my blade with wings and some extra strength. It's 10' now but works great. The pump is a E60 now but I bought a Monarch system to mount in the tool box and plumb it to the front. Not a big fan of meyer equipment but I finnaly got it the way I want it. I ended up welding all of the ribs to keep the salt from sitting in there. 25lbs of weld wire went in to it.

    Nice customizing of that meyer. Looks good. Don't you think your going to have to add another trip spring to it?

    The plow does not really need the extra spring in my opion. It was planed but to put one on with a shock but ran out of time. It trips nice and holds good. The extra weight of every thing really changed how it acts. Before the mods that blade triped all the time and it would not stay on the ground. I really like the setup now and it is how i will have my blade for my truck from here on out.

    Whats your suspension/tire/wheel set up on the truck? It looks good.

    Tires are the Courser MT 315s on a 8x16 rim. The truck has a 3 inch body lift on it. The suspension is setup pretty heavy. A standard lift kit didnt work so good on my last truck, it lifted it but it had lots of sag under load. So on this truck I did the torsion bar with the new keys, 4inch lift shocks, and Timbern on the front. The back has a mix of some things on it. Add a leaf, 4inch arched lift spring, and super springs with a few spacers on it to account for the lift. All the lift on it was cheaper then buying a complete 6 lift kit. It is a log wagon but it usally always has a load on it so it hauls nice and handles the salty dogg heaped very well.

    I think it looked better and more professional without the lift.
