How do you like those wings? I have a 7.5 unimount also that is on my F150 and I am considering getting a set. Either I would like to buy a set or home make closed ends on the sides of the plow.

Either way my main account is HUGE and it takes a REALLY long time to get snow the the end of the isles (with cars on both sides) w/o wings or something.

Do you have any problems with the wings folding back when you get into heavy snow? Do they get in the way very much?

the wings are not to bad...they dont scrape to well be they help out a little bit...we do a couple big lots and the extra foot does make it nice...on my next truck and plow im not sure if ill get them or step up to an 8foot plow...also the rubber cutting edge wore away real quick to where its like 1/4inch of the ground so thats why they dont scrape well...

Don't they get in the way if they don't scrape? I mean when you are trying to get up in a truck bay or near a curb... do you have to take them off or something?

I'm looking for something that will make a "scoop" effect because I have isles that are about 900 ft long and the snow has to go to the end of them. With my straight that is an agonizing process. I really probably need a V blade but I don't want to spend the money for the upgrade when I already have this unimount paid for.
