    Mine has manual steering and a am radio. I think you guys might be a little spoiled :p . I do have a 203 t-case and it is the best setup in the world for plowing. No jumping and bucking in tight turns but good traction. I guess I would call that a goodie.

    LOL at the reasons to justify to the wife, funny so true. You really didn't tell her someone stole your muffler though did you? :eek:

    This is SO true. Sure wish more trucks came with this full time 4wd t-case.

    My 75 Suburban came with the NP-203. On small storms, I'd keep it unlocked almost the entire time. Great for drift cleanups where your traveling on 1/2 snowy areas, then totally dry area's the next minute. Gets hairy....just pull the stick back and lock it in.

    Also great for 4x4 low range without binding up on dry pavement.

    They offered it to my as part of the business fleet lease package.
    I just told them that we rack up over 100k hwy miles a year and they suggested this new message center for tracking our data so we wouldn't have to keep a clip board there.

    It shows you how many gallons of diesel you used plowing the lot,
    it times how long it took to plow the lot, and how many miles you put on doing the lot. It also shows you how many MPG you got plowing the lot.

    It also has a seperate mileage guage, engine hour meter, 2 MPG Readout and a second message center so you don't have to restart it at the next lot.
    It also shows various other things you may want to keep track of for business.

    Then you can compare MC 1 w/ MC 2 to see how things varried between lots.
    I figure it is going to help me better track my expenses on plowing.

    What does my plow truck have?

    Well I replaced the bad heater fan with a new one so it has heat. It also has a crap radio with 1 good speeker, other 3 are fuzzy.

    It has a alumnium flatbed though. Load it with a few bags o salt and its ok to go.

    One option that seems like a good idea is a new cab. Its not worth fixing the current one with a mostly rotted floor and non working seatbelts and one door that opens.

    It plows though.

    I think it is impossible to buy aftermarket because it is mounted and controlled by the steering wheel, and perhaps made by gm.
    It would be great if someone produced one of these for other trucks.
