    Finally had some snow and got the chance to plow. The truck really worked out fine as did the plow. Had my 21 year old son along for his first plow run.

    That must suck to have only one snow storm this year, here in Berrien County,Michigan I have plowed most all of my res. & com. accounts about 12 to 14 times,(apx. min of 3'' up to 12'') the school that I plow at is up to about 20 times, but that lot has to be done after a 1'' or more of snow, they are calling for another 2''-4'' tonight on top of the 8''-10'' we allready have and lots more sunday, (plus we get that great LAKE EFFECT snow)
    I get up at about 2:30am and drop the blade at 3:00am and don't get home untill 6:00 or 8:00pm and some times later.

    Didn't meen to hijack the thread, but I thought every one was getting more than one good snow.

    Good luck to all that needs snow, be safe out there and watch out for stupid people doing stupid things!

    Nice truck.

    To cameo89, I live up in East Lansing, and we've been getting lots of snow, too. It makes me even more angry that my truck is currently non-operable!!!! :angry:

    Cameo89, We have had more snow this this but I just got the truck and plow about 3 - 4 weeks ago. The day after I bought it, the temp went to the 40's. Go figure huh. I'm sure we will get more snow between now and the end of March. Hopefully a lot more.

    f250man. The SXT is a new model in between the St and the SLT. More options then the ST and less then the SLT. I was originally going to buy an f350 or f250 but could not put the deal together. A friend of mine sells Dodge and well, the rest is history. The lifetime warranty Chrysler has was a deciding factor.

    That's a pretty sweet truck! How do you like it so far? I never used to like Dodge, but I ended up buying one this year, and so far it has been great. I'm slowly becoming a Dodge Ram guy! lol

    I think it's great. The new trucks come with a lifetime warranty on the drive train, so it was a no-brainer in the end. I also upgraded the tires to Goodyear Wrangler A'T Silent Armour and so far so good. It handled very well the other night and had no problem plowing.

    Yep, I got it from Sawyer Motors. I have known them for many years. A friend of mine works for Bob and it is the second truck I've bought from them.
