Called a local truck outfitter today and asked about prices for a MP Highway, 1.8yd, stainless with the propac (honda engine) and was quoted $5200 and change (plus 400 for install :eek: ). I have a couple questions, first does this seem high for this unit, (the install seems absurd) second does anbody know of a Highway dealer in New Hampshire (no sales tax). Thanks for any replies.

I don't know about the hiway, but there isn't much to the install on a Torwell, if you know basic wiring you can do it yourself. I transferred mine from one truck to another in a couple hours.

Pelican I now do plan on installing one myself (if it was 100-150 I would let them do it) I installed my warren when new and it was pretty easy. What I don't understand is why its about $300 to install a plow and $400 to install a spreader? It shouldn't take an experienced installer more than one to two hours TOPS to install a spreader on a pickup. This guy is known to be on the high end when it comes to prices but this seems nuts :mad: .

EDIT: Thanks snow for the heads up on the spreader!

I would love to install spreaders all day compared to doing a plow. Connect the wires, grease and strap it down. Fill the engine with oil and gas, connect the battery and you are done.

I would go with Dino on this one though:eek: I am leaning towards going to stainless electrics as my gassers wear out.
