    Quite a bit. You are better off though just removing the lower valance as that is what you would actually be notching. Thats the plastic part under the actual bumper. You don't actually notch the bumper.

    I have the 2008 MVP Plus Ultra Mount on a 2500HD NBS. Although, the two hook's which hold onto the plow frame rub the lower center valance nothing had to be notched. I did loose my tow hooks.

    ( btw ... there is NOTHING on the front of the NBS that can be called a bumper. It's cheap pop mold plastic with a center tin rim that will hold body weight. Otherwise the concept of their 5-star crash rating is that they rely completely on crumple zone designs. Great curb appeal - just not real practical.)
