    The truck craft has both a replacement tailgate unit and undertailgate unit. Both are very nice and very reliable. RCPD has a replacement unit and swears by it.

    I have central hydraulics. If you plan to go that route, plan on spending an extra $3500 or so just for the hydraulics. Then another $3500 for the spreader. I will say this. Once you central you never go back.

    I saw a SnowEx one last year at thier facility. It is suppose to be released this year. It looked pretty good but i heard rumors there that it was going to retail around $5k.
    They also had a 4 yard version of the V-Pro 8500.
