Thinking of getting a snow plow...

Hello to all, I am thinking of getting a snow plow for my truck and i had a few questions.

I know that plow have the hydrolic ram that lowers them but can you use a winch instead. Thank you. pics of some plows on a truck would be nice....

The plows sit close to the truck, so the aftermarket winch bumper and winch won't clear them.

My last 2 plows were Western straight blades on different trucks.
For my 07 I opted for the Boss 9'2" Power-V XT (joystick controller instead of the handheld):





You can see how close it sits to the stock bumper.

I am in the market for a new plow. I've had Meyers (just ok...kind of light duty) and now I have a Fisher 80" (trip edge: AWESOME...) on my 95 GMC Yukon...Its a nice plow. I looked at the BOSS and like what I saw. How do you like yours?...Nice rig, by the way!

Sweet rig and setup DCSpecial...are those the lights that come with the bosses now? What's the light on the inside for? hi-beam?

I also like the custom bumper

Yep, separate Hi and Lo beams. They are dual burn when you click the highs on (both stay on).

Haven't pushed with the Boss yet, but playing around with it in the driveway I like it
