    I had one headlight out and the dealer told me to replace the fuses located behind the headlights on the truck. They cost $250.00.:cry: After I replaced them everything worked great The first storm came and hooked up my plow and headed down the road. The first bridge I came to, at about 60 miles per hour, it blew the fuses again. Any ideas before I spend another 250.ussmileyflag

    blown fuses

    Our jobs are spread out, mostly connected by highway. I have 420,000 miles on this Dodge, and it still runs like a top. I don't go over 60, but I not limited to any overheating problems either.

    I hardly ever exceed 50mph on the highway with the plow on. There is just too much bounce steer with it on to go any faster! I had the wind steer my front end one time. I did 5 -90* shifts in the front end before I got it under control. The first time it went () I was sure the tires planted and I was going to roll. But it broke traction and I was able to get it under control after 4 more steering corrections. Good thing I made yellow snow behind the dumpseter before I left. When the truck lost control I would of wet my pants! It's one of those OH MY GOD moments! Then It's OH MY GOD I WoN !

    He was refering to the headlamp modules.

    But I imagine he has it sorted out by now since this thread is 10 months old. :rolleyes:
