    I see what your painted XLS looks like after 2 years. Why not bring it out in stainless? And what about some stainless wings for my extreme V?

    thats a good idea. i like the look of a stainless plow and i bet it really increases the resale value down the road

    I would love to see a stainless XLS like snow dogg, Preferably in a 8.6-11 or 9-11 HD version size for my F550.

    I just can't see D&D comming out with an SS XLS. They would have to drastically change the design to make it work. I just can't see it being as strong as the current design. They're literally bullet proof as they are now.

    I totally agree on the wings. Their Xtreme V wings are hellaciously beefy, I would love to see a similar wing for their straight blade line as well.

    a little ot...but repo do you know the torque size for the bolts ontop of the xv for the moldboard........i dont have the size in my tool box...and dont want to buy the wrong one...thanks


    Edit: ss xls would be a nice idea, but along with what repo said i would think the plow would be very noisey with all that stainless and moving wings also

    Sorry I don't. The actual bolt is a 3/8 x 16 Button Cap Screw....no idea on head size unfortunately.

    A cheap set will only run you around $20 bucks or so. As much as I like the driver handle style, I picked up a full rack of 3/8 drive style ones for $40...that was 10+ years ago.

    Whole frame and mold board in SS = $$$$$$
    But that would be a awesome plow!
