    I thought about this while reading another tread, I find myself plowing with the window down no matter what the temp is, asked a few of my buddies and they do the same. So how many of you guys plow with the window down.
    :confused: :rolleyes:

    Always down because sometimes when the windows get condensed, you have to reach out and squeegee them becuase you only rely on using the mirrors when backing a dump truck up. I rad once on Boss's site under plow tips that it wasn't good to plow wiht your window down, well heck, I have yet to hit something so....

    Dark windows all the way up with the stereo blasting and the straight-piped engine on the rev limiter (5400 rpm)!!!!!! Just kidding, windows cracked to hear horn honking of an unseen car.

    Always windows down (country on), but after reading that almost everyone else does, my question is why? I am trying to figure out why i do and I cant.

    Driver's side always down. I also put anti-fog on the inside of the windows so if they are up, they don't fog over.

    Drivers side down 3 reasons.
    1 windows are less likely to fog.
    2 I can swing my head out when backing up(only trust the mirrors a little) and my rear windows are tinted so I can also when I look at the Drive side mirror it is un obstructed.
    3 I can hear much better (truck performance, other vehicles)
  20. windows down. However, depending on if snow is blowing in one of the windows, I'll roll that one up and roll the other down more. I adjust the heat as necessary.
