    Hey guys I've had my plug mounted right on the side of my truck's plow frame. used the left over holes for the push bar. but this last storm I had to stack so high that when the plow rolls on the hitch pins the frame rubs on the plug. after a half a day the plugs been moved so much that I have to get out and push it back in so the controller works again..
    So here the spec's
    2008 F350
    New Boss 8'-2" power V
    the little bracket for the truck side of the plow harness

    so were did you guys mount your little bracket? pics would be nice

    and no I really dont want to just plug it in and throw the harness inside my bumper to much snow ends up in there and if I ever had to unplug the plow it would be imposable..

    I would never have anything like that on the front of my truck.

    Not sure on the 08 but on my 05 I removed the driver's side tow hook and built a bracket to bolt to the stock plug bracket that fits inside the pocket of the frame. It's deepset so it won't get hit and broke.

    i got rid of that ugly bracket all together... 03 dodge ram the grille lifts with the hood and just tucked the wires behind the headlights when not in use.. nothing is exposed to the elements of nature... yes you do have to lift the hood when on/off with the plow but small price to pay vs. busting the cheap plastic grilles that are made on most popular trucks now;.. good luck

    Why not make the bracket behind the grill going along the bottom and only have the plug ends sticking out alittle.
