    Hey Guys,
    I am going to buy a plow here very quickly. I am just starting out and wondering which is more prefered Western or Boss? Should i just start out with a straight blade or should i consider a v-blade. Is the v-blade better, i know it can do a lot more than the staright blade, but other than that which do u prefer? Should i go with a 7.5' or 8' plow on a 2500 HD?
