Plowing Lights

Who here plows with there girl. I always ran a rediculous amount of strobes in all my trucks and I'm starting to get tired of it. I may still do it, just not as many as I use to so perhaps just one kit (4 bulbs 1 per corner or do 2 in the back of each so 6 total). Anyway I was thinking a real nice low profile white lightbar to magnet or suction to roof. Anyone run something like that. I don't like the yellow smack on light so much, rather strobes over that but. Open for suggestions I like havign lights for safety and fun. I leave them on for all purpose as well as sittin on side of roads helping people. I dn't think I am going to do a backrack but I know if I did that would do it all for me.

no one plows really? Is it just to early in season to bring that up? haha.


Also does anyone suggest Timbren bump stops or go for bags.

i plow for someone, no insurance, no bidding etc, i show up, plow for X amount of hours, and recieve $50 bills for each hour worked

cons: you beat on the truck, its not to bad if you know what your doing, but its more then driving down the high way
