    I was'nt happy with the plow mouting the local dealer did so I too it back and they corrected it. I have it all ready for the upcoming plowing season. I wish I would have got some of that wire loom stuff for the wire job. I may make a reese hitch setup for the spreader.

    Yeah, did you cut those out yourself? Or did a shop do that for you?

    The switch box and spreader control is mounted in a 2 tier pedestal mount from Gall, you can get more tier ones. There are 5 switches,(each protected by a 20 amp fuse) in the control box, 1 for the strobe, left ally, right alley, back bumper lights, the last is power to the diesel fuel pump. The tank is a 100 gal, I use for fuel for the trucks.

    sweet!!! Mine's going to look exactly the same when its done.. Only Western Plow and Western salter..

    I'm having a buddy mount the light controls on my dash. Salter control is going to go up against the seat in the middle. I like the bumper lights, I'm want to have the same thing done, just looking for someone I trust enough to cut out my bumper.

    up to 46 residentials and 9 commercials.. BRING ON THE SNOW! :drinkup: and get lots of :sleeping: first!

    we were going to use a 2.5" hole saw, but that was'nt getting it, he had torched out his on a 92 f-250, but on his he did'nt have a template. So I got the lights, and rubber seal/holders, and bought 1 mounting plate for this kind of light, then he outlined it and torched it and finished it with a 4" grinder. Looks good. :)
