    Finally got some in st.louis, some areas below had 4-8 inches. Overall the truck did quite well.

    Here's a movie theater lot I subbed for a fellow plowsite member.

    The next 3 are a church parking lot.



    There were times when the truck didn't have enough a$$, but taking less snow per pass, I made it through.

    What makes you say it didn't have enough azz? Were you in 4wd low?

    Most of the time it was in 4-hi. On the long pushes, the snow would just build up and turn the truck sideways, not enough weight and power.

    I will write that off being my fault not the truck's.

    Happens to bigger trucks too man.

    You can get wings at pretty much any dealer i would think...but that's just gonna make it the snow a little harder to push as there will always be more snow in front of your blade as opposed to not having wings.

    Nice pics.:drinkup:

    Looks like a nice money maker for you...do you carry any weight in the bed? I've found even 300lbs makes a difference....just my 2cents

    i like it, pretty nice setup there! yeah if it can push that plow easy, then you could use wings... but i know when the snow is heavy, even our f150s can grunt some with the 7'6 wide plows, id say that should be wide enough for that truck since its gotta be a few inches narrower than a full size pickup right?
