    Plowsite really came through for which I AM thankful...
    I was in Florida last week... first snow of the season here in Philadelphia. 1.5" on Wednesday... Two subs were no shows.. and the trans blew on the main plow truck, with up to 10-17" in the upcoming weekend forecast...

    I flew up on Thursday night and got to work... Put a post on plowsite that I was looking for a mounting carton for an 87 Ram Charger... got a call from a plowsite member that delivered the part to my door on Friday... Took it to the plow shop at 9 PM friday night and picked it up Saturday at 6:30 PM... there was already 9" down... I gassed up and plowed with that truck for the next 26 hours straight.... All tight driveways and small parking lots... top dollar work... maybe $3-400/hour.

    I could have picked up the mounting carton in Deleware, but plowsite saved me the time and trouble.... very cool to have this site as a resource... Thanks all,

    Daniel, Glad I could help out. I think that was your father there when I dropped it off for you? He's a real nice guy regardless! I hope the mounting carton was all I said it was for you, and I'm glad you got to use it for this storm. If your'e interested in the ramcharger that it was on, drop me a line, I still have it. Let is snow, and lets all make some payup !

    Derrick and all,
    Here's a pic of the rig...
    bought the blade, pump and frame and lights for $1,100
    Derrick brought over the mounting carton for $250
    Paid dealer prices for the wiring and switches, I went with the two switches, cause that's what the dealer had in stock and I like to angle and float at the same time...
    Paid around $250 for installation... Something under $2k in total...
