    so, this is my first year plowing with a v-blade (boss 8'2"). so far i love the thing, but i'm curious about what position to put it in for driving to keep the truck running cool. what have you guys found out through experience? thanks!

    In the ^ position with a little bump forward.

    I personally don't have one, but i see guys with them in the v position, i don't know if this is because it isn't as wide, or if it keeps it cooler

    Everyone I ever see has them in the "V" position.

    I have a 8'2'' and I always run it in the v when driving , but my truck doesn't get hot with the plow on so I don't know if there is a better position for a over heating problem or not.
    I run it like that because its is narrower that way and the weight is closer to the truck
