    Put in heavier coils, that'll convert it to a 1-Ton truck!

    Good thing it's a 4x4 that way when the plow is up and the back wheels are in the air you can still move. Must be hard to stear though. :D :D :D Just Kidding but the picture it presents kind of makes me chuckle.

    I'm under the impression that the raise/lower function, when operated, is for raising & lowering the rear end of the truck? :).
    I would have to believe that the plow edge stays on the ground all of the time. I guess the power angle helps when making a turn. Lol. :eek: :D

    Instead of plow shoes it has hydraulically operated casters under the plow to raise.:D
