    What size is it? 7.6, 8.2, or 9.2? I'd say either way it's very well worth it. How about the controller, is that included?

    I priced a 8'2" Boss V and it was $5000.00 brand new including install. $2000 sounds like a pretty good deal. Breck

    Here ya go, I paid $2000 for this one on november. its a 2001 i think. Then I paid $320 for the truck mount and $300 for a handheld controller, it came with a toggle switch controller and i didnt like it. It sounds like a good deal i would go for it and put a set of timbrens on your truck..

    Dont max out the T bar crank! And dont pay someone to do it IMO. Do a search in the chevy section, I posted a bit ago on cranking the t bars. Try raising your truck 3/4" in the front over its stock empty hight.

    Buy some timbrens(they are cheap and very easy to install) talk to big nate

    Run the proper amount of ballast!!!! I would start with 500#.

    With a boss, Dont plow in the scoop mode very fast unless you are sure about the pavement underneath and its smooth!
