    I'm going with what i know and can get parts for 24/7. 8' Western Pro plus with wings.
    I want to go bigger but i have 2 lot's that are preventing me from getting anything more then an 8' plow. :(

    Nothing wrong with an 8' straight blade- that's what I've got- works great for me!:nod:

    I always wanted a blue truck... I am worried about the dark color though. I do have to duck under a few tree branches every now and then. I hope the scratches don't show up to badly !

    Cut the tree branches one night when your out.

    That blade with wings will be very productive, you will be happy.

    Nice truck. Any plans for the tires or wheels? Just seem "Small" for that truck

    Thanks for all the comments guys :)

    The tires are 17"... I think. ( 256/70R17 121/118R) I'm not a car/truck/ mechanic type person :p

    I'm planning on using the stock tires for now and see how they go. I will change them out with some BFG TA/KO's if these turn out to be garbage. They do look small in those pictures though.

    Any one ever use the stock tires ? BFG Rugged Trail T/A

    that is a slick looking truck, looks just like mine, same color and body style but diesel....color is not bad, but dont get deep scratches, it will go right down to the damn metal, new paint is not as good as the old 97 fords

    Funny you should mention that- my mechanic had a '08 f350 in his shop in bright red- same color as my truck, he was showing me that the damn thing has some scratches (not real bad ones) that are right down to bare metal and the truck's already rusting more than my truck that's going on 8 years old!
