Wow I thought it was a 1500. That's pretty smooth.

I kinda did as well, but now looking at it a second time I can see it has that beefy look to it.

Thanks guys for the compliments.

My 2004 Duramax will still be my plow truck for the rest of this winter, and the 13' will be personal use this winter - [ and for bidding jobs ].

Come spring I will decide what truck will pull our enclosed trailer. I hope to be able to keep the 04' and have 2 trucks/ backup truck.
Maybe next winter buy another BOSS v-plow and have 2 trucks plowing snow. The BOSS v's could be used on either truck then - I think.

The Duramax/Alison emblem is on the side of the hood - drivers and passenger side. I also got $500.00 worth of free accessories from GM - just for being self employed.

Do you guys like the painted mud guards? I hate the salt/sand crap that gets flung up on the sides during the winter.

I'll take more pics tomorrow and post them.

Decisions, Decisions. I really like it though and yeah now I saw the duramax plate on the hood i've noticed the newer models do it like that now. haha that was cool of them to do for you. The mud guards look cool but, hard to notice since they kind of just blend in with the whole truck. YES!! MORE PICTURES!

Good luck keeping those mud flaps on if you plow plow snow. Mine broke off on my 350 not plowing. It was just from all the crap on the roads in the winter, then the warming and freezing we get. Maybe your far enough north it won't get as warm there. Back into a frozen snow pile and snap off.

yeah I'll have see if I decide to maybe remove them for the winter or not. The truck was clean from the dealer - but not waxed at all.

With most of winter ahead of us, I just did a gloss and seal on the paint.
I realized during the first wash that it really needed paint protection! I have OCD when it comes to trucks and equipment.

I dont blame you there. I hate dirty trucks. I cant stand mine after a weekend of hunting. Image is everything to me.
