    I hear ya! Waited about 3 weeks for the mounts, now winch is broken, and has been sent in for warranty repair, still waiting in that :realmad: My SB hasn't even seen snow yet!!

    Of course, the busiest time of year, SB customer service says they ship 500 orders per day, so I have to wait in line. I should have expected as much though!

    You probably got 5-6" today, right?

    just got done shoveling the driveway, twice,had bout 4 inches down on the ground at 9:30 this morning, by the time I got the driveway cleaned up, bout 120 ft, had almost 2 inches back down, so kept on goin, got it cleaned up nice went out to my shop for an hour or so, came out to another inch and its still goin strong, so gonna be back out again once a few more inches drops.

    On a good note, SnowBear says my "free" HD skids will be here tomorrow and the mount will be here friday.... I hope they are right this time.

    And my SB hasnt seen snow yet either...lol.

    Did you have to ask for the free skid shoes? I should demand a pair for the wait I had on my mounts, and now the winch that I am waiting to be returned!

    Once my winch problem is resolved, maybe I should call SB and demand a pair of shoes or lights for all the hassle, and for the $22.00 I had to pay to ship that winch for repair!

    Well the mounts finally came,,, winch works fine, just pushed my snow banks back bout 4 ft onto the lawn so I got room for the next batch of snow. Strange pushing with such a tiny blade but I will get used to it.

    Not a bad little plow for light duty. I had the remote kit with the key FOB raise lower. all the wiring was on the plow and just the 2 pin plug on the truck. Too bad I folded the blade and frame in half when the corner caught a chunk of ice...:realmad:

    I have the old style control box, kinda big and clunky but I wired it all up nice, ran the wires inside my driverside door and out to the engine compartment where the stock wiring goes through the door and into the cab, I will post up some pics when I get the chance. I didnt like the "hook it to the window" BS,, I mean then what? I have to have my window up the whole time I plow to keep it there? and wires runnin outside the truck? bah... not me..lol. Also gonna see if I can manage to NOT fold the thing up like a lawnchair...lol. Mike did you have it on the 250 superduty when ya folded it up?

    I had it on my 99 Ranger when it folded. Just a fluke the way the corner caught some ice I guess.

    A creak, a groan and some god awful grinding noises as the plow wedged itself under the front bumper... then the cursing.
