    I have a 98 chevy 2500 with a 7.5 meyers, I plow my church parking lot, another church parking lot, and a couple of other people I know. I don't go out of my way to try to get customers because most want to be plowed right after the snow fall and I am working during the day. The jobs I plow I do after work. My next plow will be a vplow

    Picked up a set of plow wings off of a online auction, should help with trail off on the edges. I will post some pic's when I get them mounted

    Lived in the north until I was 12 then spent a couple of winters in Germany. Had fun in the snow as a kid but I like living in the south where it doesn't snow :D

    These are the plow wings I put on my 7.5 Meyers, I got them off a local auction site. I don't know the brand but they look just like these.
    Pro-Wing Universal Plow Wing Extensions

    I used the instructions from these to mount them, worked great.
    They really help with trail off but if you have to dig down they need to come off then be put back on to pile it up.

    Snow's melting right now, but winter is far from over. We should still get some storms.

      Snow is gone again and there was not enough to plow. But your right winter is far from over.

        It snowed quite a bit last week, made some extra cash. This week it's supposed to be in the 60's on Wed, crazy weather.
