    You tint your plow truck windows ? I like how tint looks but in NJ you can't tint your front windows, but even if I could I think It would be a little harder to see at night when driving in reverse. One of my own personal vehicles has tint in the front (although I get at least 4 tickets a year for it, but it looks cool).

    All of the trucks are tinted, yes its illegal, but your right it looks cool. And yes it sure is hard to see backing, usually I'm plowing with the windows down a bit. Its just dad and I with the tinted windows so we are careful

    Maybe I will just do the rears on the 350 nice and dark, I buy the precut tint on ebay and do it myself, you cant beat the $30 bucks and 30 min for a job well done

    What did you pay for this truck ? We just picked up a 99 crew cab 4x4 dually xlt with 63000 miles on it. Will be putting a 9' pro plus on this one and v box in the back. Almost hate to do it since its so clean. Also where did you get your headlights from ?

    Very nice truck, you guys are making it very hard to resist the temptation of putting a plow on mine.

    13,500 cash for the truck
    It came with a 8' MM2 straightblade newer style
    and 6 new snow tires that were not on the truck

    Gave my dad the MM2 and sold his older MM1 for 1500

    So total truck investment 12,000 (plus taxes and registration) and I have over 1,000 in new tires to go on it yet

    Thats a rig and a half. If you had a lot of parking lots, I'd toss an XLS on that bad boy and move mountains.

    Sounds like you got a good deal . We paid 11k then put a new front end, front rotors and pads all the way around so we have a little over 12 into it. Was watching a few on Ebay and could not believe what they are selling for. Similar trucks were going to 19k and still not meeting the reserve. Guess lots of guys have more faith in the older trucks vs the newer ones.
  20. Very Nice truck, and wow sooo clean, I have a 02 F250 Lariat that has the same paint job. That thing will plow TONS, i have a 99, and last year was my first year plowing with it, what a difference compared to my F250, can plow alot!
