    Another Pic

    Here is another Picture of My truck. The Dodge has the heavy duty springs with a one ton rear end. Not a dually though. I found this truck and just had to have it. It has been a reall blessing. Beats my 1970 C30 that got 7mpg and not alot of power. I am thinking about putting my Cell Phone number on the Front of the plow for advertisement. I also have an orange stobe light for when I am plowing.

    If you have any pics of your snow plow please post them here, I love looking at all the rigs.

    Thanks, Levi Duncan

    I was going to put a pic of my Dodge up, but when I had it developed I couldn't see the truck behind my pile of trannys.

    Tommorrow I'll stand on my pile of rear ends to see over the trannys.

    :D :D

    Nice truck.

    Why did you flip the plow lights right/left?

    Why an 8.2' on that big of a truck?
    (Not because weight, 9.2' is only 50# more and your flap weighs that much)

    Plow Lights?

    Kents Lawn

    What did you mean by- Why did you flip the plow lights right/left? The wiring harness will only allow you to install the lights one way. So I don't uderstand what you were tring to say.

    I went with the 8'2" v because It is a new truck and this is the first time I will be plowing. I didn't want to over do it. I don't know what a truck can handle yet, not till I get behind the wheel and do some plowing. I do wish I would have got the 9'2 Foot makes a differance. I just don't want to overload a 25k truck just yet. Better safe than sorry.

    What I am trying to say is they're backwards.

    Your passanger side headlight is on the drivers side.
    Your drivers side headlight is on the passanger side.

    The headlights are supposed to be the same contour as the steel round tube directly beneath them.

    Obviously my inquiry was form related, not funtionality.

    My apologies to you, I looked at a pick of a boss plow and you were right. I thought for sure I had only one way to put them on. I went ahead and changed them around today and rezip tied everything.

    I wish boss had a way to keep and pump and wires water tight on the plow. It rained today and alot of water was sitting in the headlights and Pump area.

    Great looking truck. Had you had any problems with the front end yet. I just bought a used boss for this year it seems like it will work great.:p

    nice grocery getter!

    Question: When your in scoop position, how does the plow react to a 8 inch curb???

    Nothing will really absorb impact on a 8" curb.
    However the boss plows will hit a relief valve, and the plow will return to a straight position, and then the entire moldboard will trip forward when an obstacle is struck.

    Actually if you hit a straight section of curb in the scoop it trips quite nicely.

    The problem is if you hit the curb in the V or if you hit something in the center when the plow is in the scoop that a trip-edge or straight blade would be better.
