    Looks kinda similar, huh??? Have you had a chance to use it yet? Just waiting for the first snow here in DC. Wondering how long I'll have to wait!!

    I almost went with the snoway, but the dealer was too far for service and all.

    got to use it twice

    We have only had 21 inches of snow here this year. Quite a bit below normal. We are expecting snow tonight. I like the down pressure and the stacking ability of the snoway. I used a boss last year on a F350 that couldn't stack as high and left a lot of clean up. Could have been due to the maneuverability of the crew cab and 8 foot box though. This one makes quick work of tight lots.

    I don't know if it is a misconseption on my part or it may do to the mounting system but it appears to be able to lift higher and I can ride up the bank more without digging in sort of like a ramp. Might have to do with the weight of the truck???

    I've been thinking about getting a plow for the wife's expedition, as a backup, at least.

    I'd be interested in hearing back from time to time about your expedition experience...how things are going... what you broke. :) That kind of stuff.

    CT: The 21 inches we got came and went with melting early in the year. Not worth pushing 1 or 2 inches at a time. Lake affect would come in at night and melt during the day. Life in sunny Syracuse.

    The truck works great. It pushes snow fine one lot I push half of (2 owners) the other guy has a Myer with the chain I can stack higher then him. The expedition give me great visability and with the 5.4L V8 it pushes good! We have had about 70 inches so far this year and I have been out often. The plow does not cause much sage as it is very light. The expedition has never experianced any overheating like the Boss V I had on a F350 land yatch 4 door long bed.

    Nothing has broken yet but the truck is getting old '98 with 140k and is tempramental in going into 4wd. (hate electronic shifting) I have to play with it switch turn off the ignition switch to 4 low then get it to lock then go to 4 high.
