    I plan on buying a Boss 8'2" V for my 08 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab. My local dealer has not installed a plow on this truck yet, but mentioned having to cut the bumper and perhaps a portion of the plastic license plate area to fit it on. Is this correct? I want to have as little notched as possible. Any pics out there? Thank you.

    There is no need to cut anything. I just installed a 8.2 vxt on my 08, all you have to do is push up on the lower plastic with the mount.

    The license plate will be fine but you have to notch out on either side of it about 2". I guess you could push it up if you want but that gets old after a few years. JMO

    Same setup-no notch

    08 2500 & poly v plow 8.2
    No notching-just pushed the plastic up.
    I did move modify the plastic licence plate holder by cutting the bottom half off.
    Gives more room when trying to hook up the plow, yet still looks good.

    No need to cut. Not sure what JD is saying about it getting old.
