    Thanks to (Mark) Lohr Equipment in Scranton for finding and selling it, and Jerre for convincing me to buy it. Hope to take it to erie soon.

    I guess it's really not a pre-DD plow, but it is one from before they screwed up the design. (2008 plow)

    I'll have close to $6K in it, well worth it in my opinion. Sorry - I would never spread rumors like that ;). Just put it together tonight, makes me realize my 810 needs some black paint.

    It has the new logo on the crate, it's definitely a D&D plow, but still the better design. I did notice it says goes from 8-10 ft, hope it is a LP!

    Nice setup. Is it just me or is $6K a smoking deal?

    Nice rig, Was Wondering how big of a deal it was to mount up I know my western was a b**** to do on my 03 F-250, was thinking about just letting Frank George or J&R put one on the new GMC

    I've done a few now. It's not that big of a deal. It takes me a lot longer than most, but it's because I'm very particular with my own trucks. Took me about an hour or two for the frame, and close to 4 for the harness - it was about 110 degrees that day, so I had to drink a lot...

    I'll never deal with the Court Street clowns. Give me a call if you don't want them to do it. J&R hasn't been very helpful - standard answers, and have to order everything.

    Yeah I dont know what im doing for a plow yet, havent made up my mind, I do know I have to put a leveling kit in the truck so it will hold it. I did see your truck sitting down Barlow nice looking rig.
