    Just picked this up from my plow dealer. 15 Chevy 3500. 8-10 Foot Wideout, BackRack Safety Rack w/ light bracket, LED Mini Bar, Line-X Spray in Liner, Carr Steps. It replaces the 06 F250 in my signature. Should be lettered either later this afternoon or tomorrow.

    Replace old customers with newer ones with better profit margins...

    I was thinking a new pair of sleepers since the old ones are starting to smell a bit funny. Thumbs Up


    Seriously thou, no changes are planned. Put a flatbed on last year.

    I have been thinking about a new Wide Out. But on other areas, the wife was just here, grabbed my pay check, I'm thinking of an upgrade there also.

    I'm trying to get is on a set replacement schedule. Those years where you need 2 or 3 makes it difficult

    You're right...they come in singles, maybe just the drivers side.

    So far so good, I'm away at school in West Texas currently for the semester, and its been out on our balcony for over a week and the last of the ice finally melted today, but the water in the cooler is still nice and cold, so for $400 and being (apparently) grizzly proof I would say its working great. :drinkup:

    Adding the pin on wings to the XV2. Looking forward to an 11' blade on the bigger lots.
    Adding a hired man to run a newly aquired Cub Cadet 11hp 30" blower. Used but in like new shape.
    Bought a "pro series" TSC brand spreader for lime and grass seed this fall, may see if it works with bulk de-icer. Thinking it will cast far too wide though.

    Check out Pelican Coolers, Made in USA. ussmileyflagussmileyflag
    http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail_coolers.php?Case=65QT

    I have friends that have Yeti's and Pelicans, I felt Pelican was a tougher built product all the way around and it's not made in China.
