    Advantages, disadvantages?

    Anyone running both on their jeep, truck?

    Can a front plow have a trip blade and a back drag blade?

    Advantages of back drag edge would be 1 plow, shorter truck, and less costs. Advantages of a rear plow, can scrape down to pavement and pull it all out in 1 swipe, you can lower the rear plow going around corners and pick up what your front blade spills off, and they look cool as hell, lol.
    To answer your second question, there are alot of guys on here that have 2 plows on trucks. I am one of them, and love it.
    To answer your third question, yes you can have a back drag edge and have your plow be a trip edge.
