    I'm having my lawyers draw up the $100,000,000 lawsuit as we type. payup

    Really, good luck on the truck/plow setup, dubeb31. I've got a '96 Silverado 3500, too, with a 6.5 Turbo Diesel. I put a 9' Fisher and a two yard sander.

    all year

    Hey guys i work all year on my trucks sometimes just a few hours a week but every year i see those guys who just hook up there equipment and go at the first storm and then are at the repair shops as i drive bye. This work is spotty at best sometimes the big storm hits and you have to be ready for the worse if your equipment is checked and in good working order by the end of summer and looked over after each storm your down time is almost none and complete rebuilds during summer you find the small things turn into big things durning the storms. With my rebuilds this summer i have found small cracks in lots of welds and stress cracks in pins so a good inspection of all parts will keep me running all winter (better in 80deg than -20deg) Eric......
