As long as this one holds up until then I will be happy its my daily driver too so it never gets a break. but I am real good about keeping up on maintenance
I hear ya, but all this work will catch up with the truck. I did the same thing your doing but without the plow. I worked the hell out of it, and still have it, but i put alot of money into it over the years.

Ok I see. Blast works but haven't even had the chance to use it Probably not for a while either as the next ten days are clear or rain. My dad got the new mount done and I painted it. I will have to get some pictures up tommorrow!

Yeah your talking about your 98 right? Hopefully when I get my 3/4 ton I will just get the mount for this plow so they are interchanagable, unless I get enough work for 2 trucks in the winter.I have thought alot about just getting rid of this one and geting a 3/4 or 1 ton but this truck has been so good to me and I just don't want to get rid of my first truck. btw-how old are you?

Put some new backup lights on yesterday. I just wired them into a switch. I had a light in my trailer harness but the spreader covers most of that up.
