    They finished the install today. Looks great. I have a Sho-Me led mini light bar that is coming in later this week. New tires are going on as soon as I can get some time.

    Looks good. Why did you mount the control in the middle like that?

    Nice friggin setup man! Is it the 8' super duty?
    Do you have timbrens or anything up front? Because with the plow lifted the front end isnt sagging much at all

    No timbrens up front. It does not sag much at all, which I was surprised by when I picked it up. They said they cranked the torsion bars 2 turns but I didn't think it would do that much. I drove a Dodge 2500 with the same plow and it sags a lot more than this Chevy does. Maybe its the plow prep package? :confused:

    8' super duty. :gunsfiring:

    It was mounting the controller like this or drilling into the center console and having your leg get in the way. It is very comfortable the way it is mounted by extending your arm over the arm rest. The gear selector is 2" away from the controller which means quick gear changes. 3 screws beneath the cup holder to get it out.

    Looks great.

    But I'm wondering, do many people like the ram lift on that plow? I would think it limits the movement up when piling up some snow. Not that you need to when you can charge for a loader after the storm. Also how is the float speed with just a ram? Does it drop and go into float right away? or is there delay as the ram drops?

    In ram, are you talking about the vertical hydraulic shaft that raises and lowers?

    Sorry, don't know a lot about the parts of a plow. What I can tell you is that it raises up and drops down very quickly. No problems there.

    i think he means that since there is no chain that goes from the plow to the lift arm the plow will not lift as high.
    Alarsh make sure you remove the pins that hold the lift cylinder and put anti sieze if the dealer hasnt done it yet. otherwise they get to be a real pain to remove.

    I thought the same thing jazak. I checked and there isn't enough room to do it. I ordered a mini led bar instead.

    There is a guy here from Ontario working on the big LNG facility with strobes in his Ram 3500 clearance lights and its a very nice set up.Would wonder the price on them and how hard it would be to wire up.

    Anyway to the thread at hand,Very nice truck Man hope she makes lots of cash for you this year.

    Well i'm sure you could make it work if you are willing to spend enough time messing with it. If I order some strobes I will look into it a little more.

    That truck and plow looks sweet. Not a chevy guy but looks good. There is a thread on here somwhere talking about the strobes in the clearance lights. On the chevy someone put them in there and it melted the lense. Probably not a good Idea. I want to do it to my Ford but I don't want to screw it up.
