    On a 5500, why not go with the full size 8611? Good luck finding an LP, that's a hot ticket item!

    I was gonna say the same thing doug, dont get a LP, get the full size one, the truck will handle it. Dont the LPs have more wing issues than a regular 810 and full size 8611s?

    yes they do. thinner slide boxes to keep the weight down on the plow for the smaller trucks.

    I have bent a wing on my LP, but after a little help from the Dr. in Erie, it shouldn't bend again... My LP is on an F350 and I have to be somewhat careful of the wings knowing they bend more easily than an 810, I couldn't imagine putting it on a bigger truck if there's any potential of bumping a curb, etc...

    Straightened it back out and reinforced it top and bottom with angle iron.
