[link=http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-819448644079928681]Here[/link] is a vid of mine from about a year ago. I used a piece of pvc pipe and cut it into the shape of a plow and then used some aluminum to make brackets to mount it to the truck. I used the 3rd channel to raise and lower it. I also have it set up so I can angle it either direction or have it straight, but not from the remote.
