    How exactly did you get all of that to fit?......Lift kit? Timbren's...A lot of plow for that set-up but seems to take it better the other DMAX trucks I've seen...

    T-bars are up about 6 turns to level the truck out without the plow on. No timbrens or anything else. I plan to add atleast #500 of ballast to the back once the snow comes.

    Tires.......The fronts are 35x12.5 and the rears are 35x14.5. They are take off from the CORR race trucks. I have an extra set of 12.5 wides that may go on for winter but i will see how these things like the snow first.

    All i plow are 3 res. drives for family.

    The 860 installed was $2900.....I couldnt justify another $1000+ for the 810

    Just that there are a lot of straight blades that are good out there. The advantages of a Blizzard disappear quick when you get wing-less.

    But, ....if you have a good local dealer, and you get it cheap (sounds like you did), you'll likely be fine.

    I shopped around for a while looking at boss and western and the blizzard. It was a toss up between the three since the dealers are all within 2 miles of me. I chose the blizzard because of price and quality.

    The blizzard factory is only about 4 hours north from here with many dealers within an hour drive.
