    Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!!! We opted not to do that, but rather to provide a standard light package that maximizes output with halogen technology, while maintaining no cost increase to our customers. After all, as many of you have reminded me here on this board over the years, you don't make money with controls, mount systems, headlamps, etc., you make money where the steel touches the pavement!

    You need to stop listening to the likes of Defcon 5........

    I guess I will be removing my controller, mount and headlights. Although, why must I pay for those? Could I buy just the plow next time around?

    So what did I win... But really everyone wants to add their own personal touches (light bars/LED flashers) anyway so why make them spend an extra $500.

    If DD sold LED headlights with their plows, I wouldn't have to add my own personal touch. Halogens, to put it bluntly, suck in comparison to HID's or LED's.

    You'll probably end up with my old WO with new halogen lights

    A serious question........will these new lights be available on SnowEx plows?

    If so, can I order a plow without the headlights?

    I made a comment on the new home-plow post, the description seems to suggest there are 4 bulbs in the housing instead of 2....??

    Yes, these will be standard with SnowEx plows in 2017 as well. While the headlamps come packaged with the off truck kit including the black iron and hydraulics, I'm sure most dealers would give you a credit/ discount if you chose to not take the lights.

    Thanks for the info John!

    I'm not sure either of your two comments were very enlightening.
