    I'm looking to buy a Boss 8'2" power v to put on my 98 chevy 1500. Also would be interested in a Boss or Western straight blade 7.5-8ft for the same truck. I am also open to any other offers, but those are my first choices.

    Location- Northern,IL

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I don't know that you're gonna do well with an 8' blade on a 1/2 ton. I'd stick with the 7.5 for that truck

    My truck has 3/4 or 1 ton leaf packs and either 3/4 or 1 ton tbars or ford keys (clearing 285s with out any or very little crank). I'm more worried about my transmission than the truck holding the weight for a couple of winters before I get a 3/4 or 1 ton truck.

    You want the email to a guy here in MN that has a 2005 8.2 Poly V?? Or better yet, PM me your email and I'll forward it onto him.

    I had a WTB ad on craigslist here and he responded, but only after I bought my 3rd new V this year....

    He wants 2200 for it, complete.
