    Why is it that I can not buy wings to match my new stainless DXT, looks like crap with red wings... come on Boss, black or grey would be a better match....

    Please advise MOD...

    I've wondered this myself, the stainless DXT's I've seen with wings look goofy as hell.

    But then again, if they made the wings out of stainless, can you even begin to imagine how expensive they'd be? The regular wings are insanely priced already.

    Hi Gentlemen

    We are working on a solution/option for wings for the stainless steel DXTs. The stainless steel's weight overall make it less than an ideal choice for the wing extension material - so we are working on some other options. Sorry for the inconvenience - completely understand what you're saying.

    Mark, does this mean BOSS will switch out our red plastics when you have a solution ? ... I wouldn't have bought stainless if I had know I was going to have a zebra plow...

    Please advise...

    We totally understand not wanting the red wings on the stainless plows. We are working on some other solutions that would work with the stainless.

    They offered SS wings when I first looked into buying a DXT, my guess is weight and cost killed them...

    Sorry for delayed response guys. The issue with wings on the DXTs, in particular the stainless steel DXTs and the 9'2" models is the weight.

    From our website: "The only DXT models recommend for plow wing extensions are the 8'2" steel DXT and 8'2" poly DXT. Wing extensions do fit other DXT sizes and do not void the warranty but are not recommended as the blade may sag when in the scoop position due to the weight of the wing extensions."

    Are you currently running wings on your stainless DXTs? And if so, is the performance acceptable to you?

    I appreciate you posting that picture! I also appreciate your patience. I will send this off to engineering. What would you think about a silver/grey colored poly vs the black? Or in your opinion, do you like the black better?

    Silver or Black

    Silver or Black would suit me just great.

    BTW, the DXT is awesome so far, very impressed to say the least.

    Thanks Mark for your assistance
