    If you are having problem with the wings bending and falling off.
    Use this as a reference

    I use a 3/4 die to cut threads on the pins that slide in the plow.
    Then used lock nuts.

    My 03 pro plus 8.6 plow I did same to it at least 10 years + and never had a problem since bending them .

    Doing this cuts the rattle noise down

    I'd like to do this with my Fisher wings but I was concerned it might make them a little too rigid and bend the plow rib or spring mount

    That don't know on a MVP

    I already had one wing before I bolted them on solid bent pins and came off during a storm
