    Was wondering has anyone updated their power v to a VXT? I've found poly VXT moldboards for $1400 from a dealer near me, also I wanna upgrade to Smartlight 2s and HIDs. Do you guys think its worth it??

    Im just tired of the steel moldboards, the paint seems to come off quickly.

    Were the HIDs just plug n play? I have them in my Dmax Hi/Lows and it took like 10 mins

    Would a 9'2" be too heavy for my 2500? I see a few guys run them just not sure if it too much on GM's front end

    I have the 9.2 poly VXT on my 04' duramax the last three years without any problems so far. I did add the Timbrens in the front end last year, which is really nice!
