    I broke down today and bought a 3 year old Blizzard 8611 for my '92 Int. 4600LP they need to make a custom mount but it was $6000 installed. I thought that price was why to high. So I called every dealer around and they wanted $8000 for a new Blizzard 8611 w/ custom mount. Also I got prices on 810- $6400 8611LP- $6600 860SW-$5100. From the prices everyone else pays were around $1000 more on plows whats the deal :mad:

    Supply and demand? Maybe there's higher demand around here.

    I think that everything is higher in Minnesota. A couple of people on here were telling me that Truckcraft aluminum inserts are only $4400 on the east coast. They are $6000 brand new here....WTF?

    They might be deep but they are very empty.

    Kinda off topic, but has anybody ever dealt with L-Z truck equipment in Saint Paul? They may have changed their name to E-Z, Im not sure, Im having a brain fart.

    Aren;t they the ones over off 694 and something? I thought they were a part of truck utilities?

    They are on Rice Street, about a mile of 694. Right across the street from McCarrons lake.

    We could have full pockets if it would ever snow anytime soon.
