    New to the site. Only have 2 seasons under my belt. Finally decided to buy my own truck. Picked up a 2001 Chevy 2500HD Duramax. Has a 7'6 Western Unimount. Also putting on my tailgate mounted SnowEx Salter. The tires on the truck are wrong, too wide but not going to spend the money now to get proper tires. But got some contracts so im im happy for now on my first season with the new rig. Any suggestions would be great.

    The truck and plow look great. Looks like you have a little project for the off season by refurbishing the plow. Other then that she looks like a money maker. Good Luck this season and welcome to plowsite.

    ya the plow has seen better days. But this summer im planning on sandblasting it, put a fresh coat of paint, and put a new cutting edge. The pump is new, and works great. Thanks for the welcome.

    Honestly im loving the Duramax. Had a 05 F-350 Dually with the 6.0L Powerstroke. I hated the powerstroke. Had to replace the motor at 60k. No complaints.
