    The truck is a Model year 07, not the 08 you might be thinking about. The truck in the photo is stickered 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD.

    I was debating on buying that or a Ford F250SD and we went with the SD. But all the booklets I got from Chevy didn't look anything like that (truck body style wise). The front end seemed wider and higher than that one. Who knows, but won't that 16' wing push that 3/4 ton around somewhat? Watching and talking with Jerry from Jerry's Service last year or so he had a wing and if I remember right he said you needed at least a one ton (he had one on a 3/4 ton SD.....I beleive. Looks ready to plow some snow though.

    Im pretty sure that is his gas engine that runs his hydraulics.

    Nice truck, Jon. Nice touch with Double O 7 on the back window.

    The box in the back of the truck has a 13hp Honda engine equipped with a hydraulic pump, tank, and manifold to run all of my plows. The truck does not have a wing, the SwingWing is the brand name of the rear expanding snowplow. Pics of that will be here shortly, just waiting for it to get back from powder coat.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I don't mean to sound like a idiot but can someone explain to engine in the back for the plow? I have never seen nothing like that in my 30 years of being on this earth? I am just use to straight 7' 6" blades smaller trucks. So I would be interested in hearing about that setup with the plow.

    I'll quickly try and answer the questions at hand.

    1) The bumper is a custom built unit that kinda works like a trailer hitch receiver. The part attached to the plow slides over the bumper, then two pins hold it on the bumper. I'll post pictures to explain.

    2) Because truck manufactures do not build trucks like they used to, meaning no room under the hood, I have everything nice and neat in a box in the back of the truck. Plus, with central hydraulics, when the truck slows down so do your plows. This way that I have gives me constant pressure and constant speed. It's lightning fast compared to electric over hydraulic, and one step faster than central hydraulics.

    3) The box in the back runs my front and my back plows, Super fast.

    Hope that helps.

    Very Slick!:salute:

    Did you fuel the Honda from the truck tank or from the original tank mounted to the engine?

    Where did you run the exhaust?

    The unit runs of the Factory tank on the engine. I get about 4 hours of plow time before I have to refuel.

    The exhaust ports out the rear of the box. The box sits 4 inches away from the front of the truck box. It's great because my rear window stays dry and clean all night. After about a couple minutes in the truck you don't even know it's behind you. Chevy's have great sound deadening qualities.

    Why didn't you tap into the truck tank for fuel?

    Truck fuel is a pressurized system, plus the Honda vibratory fuel pump just doesn't have enough pull. Tried it once, it sucked.

    Fueling up just gives me an excuse to take a short break. And to take a nice potty break. ( if you know what I mean )
