    Snow

    Plow and truck looks good Hoot.
    If you don't get any snow soon we can drive up to NEW ENGLAND and find some to plow.
    I wish there was a way we could practice with the new blades.

    gmupfit rebae

    Hoot, The rebate is available thru your dealer on certain year trucks. Check with your dealer, I dont know the year of your truck, but if it is a 2003 or 04, you should be eligible. Your dealer will know. I think that a lot of these rebates go uncollected because people are not informed by dealers!! Jack

    The hookup takes less than a minute. Drive into it, lift both leg/hooks and plug it in.

    I've plowed two storms. It's fantastic. As others have said, the scoop mode really cuts your time down an gives you alot of control.

    The removable recievers are wide mouthed so you don't need such precise aim and there are NO pin holes to line up.

    One more great feature is the plow frame has a pivot frame that helps the plow stay flat while plowing and makes it easy to attach because the jacks conform to the ground. When you back out, the plow doesn't move so when you hook back up it's still ligned up.

    2500 HD Crew Cab

    Hoot, very nice set up.

    I am actually in the exact same market as you, I currently shopping for a new 2500 HD, diesel, crew cab.

    I have found out that it is not recommeded to put a plow on a crew cab diesel. Do you have any problems with that set up. How about warranty issues, does that void the vehicle warranty?

    Thanks, any info would be appreciated.
