    I called the company who did our plow installs and got a quote for 10 grand to install a central hyd. system using the newer technolgy electronic solenoid system. This included controls for the dump bed as well as the spreader. Does this sound reasonable or not. I think this is a little too much. What have you guys paid for a similar system? Thanks,

    Find another Truck shop, you should be able to have your plow, body and spreader, all for 5K or less.

    I did my own, with cable controlled valves and manual spreader console, and with some judicious shopping I think my total parts cost was under 3 grand. I'd thinkt hat 5-6 thou should do one up with no problems, including labor
