    Buying a new Chevy 2500HD truck and would like to see some photos of newer trucks without the plow on them to see how hacked up the front end of a $50,000 truck looks with a new Boss plow mount in the off season. I have an 01 2500hd chevy with a Boss; Truck and plow are awesome not getting rid of the unit just adding a new one. Thanx.

    If you add ballast , raise torsion bars a little amd then start putting on the undercarriage you not have to cut at all. Just remove lower valance.

    Foley...last Dec I too bought a 50k f250 and I didnt want the valance removed...rather my installer cut a perfectly symmertrical piece out of the middle of the valance and it looks excellent. The truck doesnt look as nice when the valance is completely removed. Cant send you a pic at the moment.

    No cutting at all on '11-'12's, remove bottom valance (the thin 2in. one that shouldn't be there anyways) Raise torsion bars 8 turns, install mount is lowest position and the valance just bends up slightly, no problems at all, no more hacking valances like old days.

    Here is mine. As you can see, I set it up without ballast or moving the torsion brs, then I lowered it an inch , thus the notch is deeper than it has to be.

    No reason to ever cut the valance! It simply bends the 1in. up to get the mount on.
