    just bought an artic 8ft poly trip edge with removable sides to make it a snow pusher if needed. just wondering if anybody else is running a pusher or turkey wings. if so, do u have to watch how much snow u are pushing, as i assume it will be hard on the tranny, if u get too much snow infront, especially if it's wet stuff. power shouldn't be a problem as i am running a duramax with the allison. just want to know a little info before the first time out, as i don't want to experiment during the first snow storm too much, as the first storm is usually not a light one. also do u guys running turkey wings use just one side on and one side off so u can wing and clean-up as needed without getting out and taking the sides on and off all the time. thanks for all the great info on this site as i think u learn a little every time u read anything on this forum.

    let it start snowing white gold anytime:D :D :D

    I would think YOU would have the least worries with that Allision....

    As for the rest, plow in low range to reduce transmission pressure.
