    We finished harvest last week and I finally had a chance to work on my new plow. I have always wanted a stainless plow but am brand loyal to Western and I prefer their mounting system to others. So I bought a new 9.5' MVP3 and changed out the poly mold boards with Fisher XV2. I am very pleased with the out come. I still need to get my deflector mounted and I am also going to paint the headlight bar black. The hardest part was getting the Fisher decals off.

    just curious, if you like Western, how did the regular cab end up with a Fisher ?

    The regular cab is my cousins truck and he had gotten a really good deal on an 8' X-blade a few years ago and really liked it. So when he decided to upgrade he stayed with Fisher. Its a great plow I just don't like the mounting system.

    Glad to hear your going to put a plow on your new truck. I know its probably not justifiable but it sure looks good.

    My Vee was picked up last week or so, I wasn't going to replace it but after seeing what your Vee looks like in SS...... are you planing on wings? I hear the VX2 might be in SS, need to find out if those are interchangeable too. If I add them, I mag do them in black, waiting to see how they actually turned out. I seen the prototypes and they looked beefy.

    It is a beautiful set up, so much for my pocket being ahead of the game!

    I hadn't planned on wings, but either SS or black would look good. Will have to see how this season goes. I just priced a deflector and holy (beep), my local dealer wants $250. I will probably order it but that seems outrageous for a piece of rubber.

    The Western doesn't come in SS, but the fisher does ? Are they difficult to interchange, or is it just a bunch of rivets on the top, and a guide / slot in the bottom ?

    How long did it take to remove ? Install each side ? What do the new mold boards cost ?

    Is that a Teardrop Airstream ??? Those suckers look like a lot of fun...

    Magnificent shop, BTW

    Western does not offer a stainless plow so I had to buy Fisher mold boards. There are four bolts on the top of each wing and just a slot in the bottom. I had them both changed in fifteen minutes. I did spend about an hour and a half getting the Fisher decals off however. The SS mold boards were expensive at $785 a piece I think, but the place I bought them paid me for my poly ones so I paid about half price. I'm very pleased with the outcome. The camper is a TAB I think its my uncles. Its nice a light and beats a tent but I don't think I could spend to many nights in it.
