    Finally got a blade, couple cranks of the torsion bars i should be doin good, maybe a little ballast haha, honestly didnt expect it to sag this much :eek: oh well if worst comes to worst ill throw some Timbrens on it. Also i have some fluid spray cant really find out where its coming from but i have the spatter on the plow and plow box you can kind of see it in the last picture , is a little spray normal or should i take it back to where they installed it to get it looked at?

    Headlights sure are big compared to others, but its my first plow so it seems normal to me.

    nice setup.. yea youll definately need some ballast for it, might not hurt to add timbrens as well. have somebody sit in the truck and run the blade through the motions and check for fluid leaking out.. just make sure to NOT get hit by the blade, that could make for a bad day :realmad: if you cant see any obvious leaks i would take it back to the dealer who installed it and just have them do a once over on it just to be on the safe side...

    youll like the headlights better. i was checking them out at my boss dealers shop and they are a lot brighter, and put out more light. also they run both bulbs when you put the hi beams on which puts off a lot more light....

    Sweet set up anything new and shiny is fun to look at isn't it! Fluid could have come from the overflow, but I agree, wipe off the old old everywhere and run it through the motions and see if you can spot any leaks. Good luck plowing the drives this winter!:drinkup:

    No hes not...its a standard duty plow, they only have 3 springs. Super duty plows have 4 springs. Check the BOSS website if ya dont believe me. NICE looking setup there man!

    im thinking that if its not leaking/ spraying out after you wipe it down mabey it hqappened to them while they were putting it on your truck. but always a safe idea to check it out and have them look at it just to be sure.

    looks very nice. best of luck with it this winter

    Nice! Better watch it on the long trips though, that will make your truck overheat really fast!
