    I have to make a decision tomorrow.... I had an 8.2 vxt and loved it, did everything great except maybe back drag. Id like to get the latest and greatest, but I really can find a lot of info on the web comparing the two......
    any advice comments?

    Nothing will change from VXT to DXT backdragging.

    Decide if you want a trip edge or not, and that'll pick the plow for you.

    Have you read the DXT Review thread?

    I went with a DXT because of the dual tripping, it's does work well and reduces the amount impact the plow and truck takes when you do tag something.
    I don't do much back-dragging and IMO no plow back-drags very well, you need a back blade to get a good scrape in one pass.
    I've seen back-drag edges and not convinced they're the cure for getting a clean scrape.

    Good choice. I wouldn't buy a plow without a trip edge.
