    Thanks, have not seen you post in a while but as for the plow other then the mvp 3 seaming to lift better due to the bigger lift piston is all the same to me.

    Good to hear! We have so much snow on the ground, i don't think i have ever seen this much…..has been such a crazy winter….I think i have plowed 5 times in the last 2 weeks….

    Life has been pretty busy for me, New job, getting married, and trying to remodel my home, all in between plowing snow lol…..Good luck the rest of this snowy season!

    thanks guys. the plow was bent because I was trying to cover the work of 3 trucks because my subs were stuck at their day jobs and I was opening lots iv never plowed with 8-10 inches of wet heavy snow. I had used the Vplow for the first time in 2 years of owning it in the v position and still having trouble opening the lanes. Once opened I was attempting to Windrow back the piles and found 3 islands that were not marked and a curb in the middle of the parking lot any one of them could have done it but I think it was the combined abuse of hitting them all at about 15-20 mph because I could not move the snow any slower. it sucks but stupidty always catches up to you and in this case it's gonna cost me a pretty penny. on a better note here is another pic of the 550 today [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure he's one of the properly educated folks who can keep a 6.0 or 6.4 together. I could be thinking of someone else though.

    Sharp equipment you've got there! Must be a full time job trying to keep a fleet of trucks running that everyone hates on because it doesn't say 7.3 on the valve cover! :rolleyes:

    I bought the truck for the body the rest i gotta deal with. My old boss had 3 flawless 6.4 and the repo company i used to work for has 300000 miles on theirs all trucks have flaws especially with the epa and dpf involved no matter what brand. This truck has a only been to the dealer for an egr cooler and that was alomost 2 years ago and 16000 miles since it been at a ford dealer so im hoping the bugs are outta it. With that said it has 34000 miles on it and the truck is spotless with 8 months left on the factory warranty at witch point ill delete it or buy and extended the warranty.
