    Brad,
    On your HRX217's, i saw a few threads back that you were putting new gears and wheels in. Was there something wrong with the old ones? Only reason i ask is I'm probably going to be picking up a HRX this week and I'm just doing my research before i buy. Thanks.

    Also, how do you like the HRX217? What have found to be the pros/cons?

    I love the HRX217s best 21" IMO they are great baggers and do great on hills I have alot of hours on both of mine. The gears sometimes were out Only one was real bad out of all 4 on the 2 mowers but I replaced all 4 gears and 4 new back tires. I had replaced one gear 2 years ago. They other weak point is the hydro control cable and they are a bit complicated to replace but one guy on here has a good write up. I think I replaced 3 out of the 2 mowers over the last 6-7 years. I did one and had a dealer do 2. havent done one in a while so hopefully they keep holding up. Otherwise they are great mowers and can take a beating thats for sure

    Brad, Where did you get the tow mirrors for the Dmax. I asked the dealer about them and he said they cost about $900. I havent really looked around online yet but I really need a set for my GMC. The small stock ones drive me crazy when im towing.

    Thanks Did you have to paint them? The ones for my truck say primered plastic. Also did yours have the built in turn signals. I dont think my truck is wired for those.

    Hey brad, Really old question, but i am looking to do dual yellow top optima batteries and am wondering if you upgraded you alternator, and if you used any solenoid? I feel like i could just run it direct without a flux capacitor or solenoid or isolator. Thanks and from one dmax owner to another...Nice Truck!!!

    just realized you used both duralast golds and red tops? which one do you like better and are you satisfied with the red tops to the point where yellows arent worth it?

    No they came black plastic and no I didn't have the turn signal but mine for the dmax are power and heated
    I had the duralasts in my half ton and never had a problem but still think optima is better. I have red tops and unless you have a diesel redtops will be fine. I do upgrade alternators didnt on the dump because it has a bigger one but I probably will someday as preventitive maintenance. I wired them together and fused the postive on the dump i actually used a more of a breaker switch rather that a big fuse.To get the most out of them you should also ground to the frame and run another wire from the alternator but I normally don't do that.
