nice plow at least. I bought a gas ford...last February, it was a mistake, but an inexpensive one and I can use it again once i put a few hundred into it. it did make me some money plowing during that 3ft storm. but really a diesel truck is the way to go. especially 92-2003 7.3 fords 4x4's they are dead reliable. my truck has 285,600 miles and is driven every single day...doesn't matter how cold it is, its driven every day doesn't matter it starts! and it tows a landscape trailer 3 days a week usually, then a loaded dump trailer another day or two a week. go diesel and stay diesel. as long as you stay up on maintenance, it will start even when its cold out and they have more power, last longer, and use less fuel.

Have taken a look at some of your threads for a bit, seems like you lay pretty good lines, how many hours on your lazers and hows the next gen been to you? Ive only ran older ones it seems and ive had mixed reviews, i had a guy near me who sold off his next gens and went back and bought his old ones back believe it or not.

My 2011 lazer has 1400 or so hours, my older lazer is an 08, that one has 2500 or so hours on it. I like em both, I think the 08 leaves a better cut but the 2011 is far more stable. So they both have their pros and cons.
