    yea, the guy I got it from loved CAT. There's a sticker on the back window, plus he put in a reman 350 last year and painted that cat yellow as well! :dizzy:

    Nice truck

    It looks good and with some modifications to the light set up it will look lots better. I like the older style chevies I'm assuming that is about an 89 or 90? And another question... is that 7ft wide enough when its angled to cover the width of the truck? Just curious because it seems like the 7 1/2 covers the width of my truck by a couple inches or so when fully angled (I thinks its only a couple inches maybe I should check next time I'm plowing). Any way real nice truck and hope she holds up well for you.

    Yea, it's an '88. Not real sure if it will cover the trucks track or not, I haven't had any snow to really push yet to find out!
