    Looks like a nice truck. The light bar goes good with it.

    Nice, that thing should do you very well. Quick question, and I'm not sure with your local laws, but are the blue strobes reserved for police/ambulance vehicles? Never know what kind of local government will come and slap you with a ticket. Just watching out for you, good luck and let it snow!

    Blue strobes are for volunteer firefighters.New York is one of the last holdouts to use Red lights on emergency vehicles.Ambulances,police and fire all use red lights.The blue lights are only a courtesy light-in other words people do not have to yeild,pull over ect to a blue light.Btw,Thanks for looking out anyways.Yeah it's supposed to snow early A.M. tomorrow so we shall see how it pushes.The forecast has been upped twice now soit really sounds like a guessing game...........Be safe everyone....

    I really like the truck.I am honestly suprised to sometimes hear people say they like the light on the truck.

    I have some tweaking to do to it this spring.I want to replace the front fender and I am thinking I am going to modify my intake manifold.It has the stock "kegger" on it and I want to experiment with something on it.I will probably end up putting a set of shorty headers on it.this is all based on how well it does this winter.Heres to a great season to everyone!!!!

    Around here the police are starting to display both red and blue in the same light bar.
    BTW, my Home Pro only says Sno Pro on it. Nowhere does it state Home Pro but it really is according to Curtis.

    Really!?? I am glad to know that...I wonder if anything is different between the Home Pro and the Sno-Pro other than maybe the blade material and width??I.E. harness,controls ect ect.Thanks for the info.

    I doubt you'll break anything they have half ton running gear for the drivetrain and are perfect for driveways

    Had a 92 Dakota with a 5.2 in it. Never plowed but def put some money into the motor. Replace the "keggar" intake manifold with the M1 intake, get some PPH shorty headers if you can still find a set, put a throttle body on it, change out the cam and put in some 1.7 rollor rockers. I had that plus a lot more (heads, pistons, crank, etc.) Those trucks can be powerhouses if you really sink a little bit of coin into the motors.

    I only had a chance to get a couple pics.It started snowing the snow totals were "upped" a bit and my cell phone was crazy with calls.I made out really well and the truck was great.
