I didn't want to have to drive around with the bed up in the air. And if you saw the way I drive while I salt, you would know why I don't want the bed up.

BTW, that Snow-ex is the shit. We have only ever had gas powered/hydraulic spreaders and we had the same problems over and over. Nothing with this one yet.

I do wish we got the next bigger size though. Just a larger capacity.

ah got ya. the snow ex's are pretty bad ass. we have had some problems with the controllers inside the trucks though, we've already had to replace on and the we have had to "african american" rig the other. and in mine the vibrate plate broke the welds so it basically does nothing

btw i added you on PSN to play some COD

yea i didnt know how it would do because it doesnt weight that much. but i think i would almost rather use that on residentials instead of my truck, its a pain to get in and out on some of the smaller ones

The one standing is part of the hard top. I have removed the other one for winter, I just did it after this picture was taken.

This shows it removed when I popped off the plow to work in the garage.

Here's what I use :). My driveway is ridiculously small and the grand total that I've got into fabbing the plow onto it is right around $11. I'm looking for a bigger quad once I get some cash saved up. I do all my neighbors driveways to help kill boredom. Going to put a winch on and work out a power angle setup to make it less labor intense...which means I can be completely lazy :)
