    I have no idea what they're worth used, story is, some guy bought one to plow his driveway, had it on a half ton truck, used it a couple years I guess, then brought the truck to the dealer for a trade in, with the plow on it.
    The dealer gave him $2,300 for the plow, which means I can get it for $2300, not a penny less. Im thinking it doesn't come with a mount ($350 I think?) and it probably doesn't come with the wires,solenoid, controller and all that crap.

    So, for just the plow, is that a good price? what would I be lookin at for the wires/mount?

    They don't make a 8'2 straight blade.

    It depends....how good of shape is the plow in? Rt2 or rt3 hitch? Mounts run 550 ish for a new one, anywhere from 100-400 on ebay, wiring new for headlight adaptors and everything 300 or so. Controller prolly 200 or so used. these are ballpark I am not a dealer or anything.

    Just got more info, comes with everything, wires, controller, mount (for an 06 ram), my guess is it won't fit a 96 ram. Im sure we can swap it out somewhere. Supposed to be in excellent condition, RT3.
    We pick it up monday. I feel like we stole it. I just hope its poly, has a deflector, and smartlocks......not that i'll be the one using it anyway.
