    Got my new plow installed! It's a Curtis 7 1/2 foot Sno-Pro 3000. Found out the hard way it's easier to put on if the ground is flat or slightly uphill. If the truck is facing downhill it's hard to align the height.

    The truck is a 1500 4x4 with 5.3L V8. Even with Timbrens, the front end dropped about an inch, so I'll add some rear ballast to even it up. Pete

    Well, other than practicing mounting and dismounting I haven't had much use for it yet. We had a couple of inches of wet snow a couple of times so far, but the ground wasn't frozen yet so I just let it melt.

    Let it snow!
