Nice truck Chuck, hey that rhymes, hehe. Where did u get it at, Warnock in East Hanover? Did it come with plow on already or did you have it put on later? Is it gas or diesel? tell us more about it, very nice truck! Mike
Yes Mike, we ordered it from Warnock in May. It came in July. Cummins diesel. trailer package, camper package, 4.11 gears. Trans temp warning light. Pulls strong, reminds me of my 77 Chevy. We had the plow installed at Van Dine's in Hackensack. Buddy there has been installing plows for 33 years. We buy all our plows and salters there.
As far as the Dodge, I posted before a while back, we had to order it because they could not locate one in 4 states around NJ that was white, with a cummins, and NOT an extended cab. Extended cab models are fast becoming the standard.... The extended cab would cut down on the payload, and the truck is long enough as it is.
By ordering it we got exactly what we wanted. (We really wanted a SRW 1 ton, but Dodge doesn't make them anymore).
Thats a nice truck ( for a dodge ) How did Warnock treat you? I havn't heard many good things about them, but i've never bought a truck from them. Anyway keep praying for snow, I hope it gets here soon.
Me personally, ive never dealth with Warnock either, but last week my brother got a brand new grand cherokee from them and he said the salesman was very nice and very helpful and they treated him well, even stayed open a little late to get all the paperwork done and allow him to bring truck home same night. They prepped it while he did paperwork and it was ready to go when he came outside. Only thing they didnt do was fill it up with gas, it had half a tank, not that he cared, but thats the only thing he said they didnt do that they could of done, maybe it just slipped their mind considering they stayed late to get him in it that very night, no big deal.

Speaking of removing the plow... I timed myself the first time.
This was on uneven ground, setting the plow and kickstand down on wood. It took me about 14 minutes. I get the feeling it is going to take A LOT longer to get it mounted up again. Since there are no couplers on it, I have a feeling it will be staying on the truck most of the winter if possible.
The MVP is a bit more time consuming to hook/unhook, but I'd venture to guess that your times will improve. I don't think it takes me more than 5 minutes give or take. I agree, though. If the truck is not going to be a daily driver, I would keep the MVP on all winter.
Sure can't throw those V's around like a straight plow when it comes to mounting and aligning.
chuck i have 3 mpv plows , it only take less than 5 min. for me,while that what my wife tells me,but thats another story. i have all of my plows on wood dollies. i just wheel the plow over to the truck .VERY IMPORTANT make sure you put a good amount of die electric grease on the plow connecters with the small pins .it is a great plow did you have to beef up the front end.good luck
