I just paid $4400.00 for a Boss 8'6'' staright installed with the hand held controller here in Michigan. I really like the speed and how easy the Boss is to install. The big thing to me is Dealer support when you need it. My Dealer is right around the corner and stocks plenty of parts if they are needed.

Good Luck Mike

I think if you have a 2500 hd I would be looking either at a v plow or a bigger blade so you can cut down on your time and then go with the dealer who you think will give you the better support. We run all boss plows but has more to do with the dealer backing his product up than a pro boss or western approach.

Just got a flyer from Blizzard plows. Model 860 8'6" straight blade plow installed for $2899.00. These are great plows, you may want to consider one.
