    Just bought a 7.5 foot myer for my 99 yukon 1500. Dont have it yet. Should be installed next week. Anyone have any suggestions for me to enhance the beef on my front end or for that matter for my truck in general?

    For me it is exciting. I took a step up from the shovel + bucket sanding method. Bought a new 1.5 yrd SS electric sander from Downeaster. Haven't realy used it yet but it sure makes the Mitisi ride better with a yard of mix on the back. Also, still waiting to try out the new 8' Meyer Poly plow on the front.

    This'll be old news for some, but mine is an '01 F-350 POWERstroke that I put a Blizzard 810 on. I'm VERY anxious to try it. It replaces an '81 F-350 which was forced in to retirement (wrecked). I hope I get the same sevice from the new truck.

    old news, too. '96 Chevy 3500 DRW 6.5TD and 8' Fisher ProCaster spreader. Been getting lots of compliments. Now I just need to get some traction. I think I'll use chains for this year.

    Santa - you're supposed to be passing out the goodies, not hogging them for yourself. You can just park mine outside my front door. Thanks:D

    I've spent a little more then I usually do this year on work "toys". I now have a 35 * 50 insulated and heated workshop. 2001 chev 2500 HD 8100 / allison trans. with a 9'2" Boss V-plow. A used New Holland 785 skid steer with 2 speed, snow bucket, land plane, material bucket, cab and heat. Curtis tailgate spreader, 2 Redmax backpack blowers (good for light powdery snow). 2001 Dodge Durango. An Exmark lazer 60 inch deck with Ultra Vac collection system, and a couple of three point attachment for a utility tractor. Only a few more days to purchase for this tax year. It's a good time to stimulate the economy with all the extra inscentives companies are offering right now.
