After following your thread for so long, I feel like I lost a truck, haha!

Good looking 08 though! I've always liked a white truck.
I know right??? Yeah I know for the first half of the thread thats all it is is pictures of the blue truck its all I had back then. I like white for work and I put my personal touch on them as you can see with the 03 2500hd.

Highly doubt I will, my reasoning is that in Pittsburgh we do just as much if not more salting than plowing. I need another bulk spreader and do not want to put a spreader on the 08. I would think about a plow on it as a backup plow truck because thats what the blue one was going to be and I might need it this winter but for now I am focused on finding a dump truck

Doubt it was a plow wiring issue they did a good job and there is no way to prove anything because the cause of fire was ruled undetermined. My best guess is the blower motor resistor wiring or some of my wiring to lights, but I am pretty sure I had everything fused.
Actually within the next week I am going over the 03 2500hd and putting more fuses in the wiring just to be safe.

Read above for my reasoning on why i probably wont put a plow on it. I wanted a diesel as my DD not a half ton. I do a lot of driving up to my camp and to Ohio in the summer towing a big pintle trailer with a truck on the back so thats why I wanted a truck like the 08 as a more personal vehicle though from time to time it may be used to tow things like the bobcat etc.

Sorry to hear about the truck Brad. I mean, on the bright side, you have two other trucks so you're not totally screwed, but I'd still feel like crap if I was in your place.

Thanks Tim, yeah I was covered for trucks that was least of my worries I never even got rental coverage when I first got insurance because I usually have another truck. I just gotta get prepared for winter I guess I am lucky somthing like this didnt happen in the middle of January too. Loved the truck and miss it but its not gunna hold me back from anything.
