Plow mount/undercarriage installation

Postby fenn » Nov 03 2011, 5:44pm

Any drilling required? Last year I installed 2 of them. One on a Ford and 1 on a dodge. The dodge was straight forward and the ford I had to drill through the frame.

Boss makes a great plow. That's what I use. Used to use a Meyers up until last year and what a difference. No freezing pumps with the boss!

Sounds like a pump maintenace issue not a brand issue, my dad has run meyers plows for years and never had a pump freeze.

First few pics had me worries thought boss plows just mounted to those two big downplates . . . was glad to see there is a rear support bracket on the frame for the plow. Wiring will be the fun part of that whole thing haven't had to wire a plow in a really long time though I remeber always having challenges with the Headlight cut off switch.

He's one of the lucky ones. It's a Meyers issue. Especially on the common E47 pump.

But those bosses are great. Hookup is a breeze also.
