    Well we finally got our 2 new additions to the fleet done and outfitted. These were done to our preferences and will be our personal trucks, which is why you see a ford and a chevy. But both plows are fantastic and I think we will love both!

    The 450 has now had the tornado 1.8 yd spreader installed and looks great!

    Can not believe my Niners are doing this well. Niners shall force the Packers to have a perfect season. Cant rest your starters if in final week of season, another team finishes 15-1.

    I love those trucks. Very nice, I have to admit though, that chevy looks tiny next to the ford lol looks like a little toy truck. How does that new 6.7 ride Im looking to upgrade after this winter and am trying to get as much feedback as possible. Is the chevy a diesel too? If so how does that stack up to the ford engine? I know you probably cant say too much because you just got them..

    Definitely a must! Order some Minimizer Poly fenders with brackets, they mount to the frame, so they stay in place over the tires when using the dump. The minimizers save the bottom of the dump bed and back of the cab and are worth every penny!

    Nice trucks!

    I'm partial to the Chevy due to better vision, plus I'm a Wide-Out guy. Maybe a Dodge 5500 next season, you know, run the gambit. Both your trucks rock though!

    The chevy has the 6.0 gas. I know bummer right :(. Just couldn't see spending an extra 7,000 for a truck that doesnt do much heavy pulling. And the Ford has the 6.7 which is excellent. Very responsive and quiet cab.
