    so, who has a 2012 and a plow on it?
    which plow do you have?
    and did you have to cut the bumper in any way?

    I have a Fisher Extreme V 9.6 on my 2011,
    Need to cut the air dam for the mount.

    I've got an '11 2500 with the CTD and an 8.2' Boss V.

    Had to make notches in the air dam for the mount.

    Next Friday I pick up a '12 2500 with the 5.7 Hemi that'll have an 8.2 Boss V.

    Decided I would go back to trying a gasser after 10 years of diesels since diesel is +/- .30 per gallon more here.

    I have it figured out I'd have to drive about 160k miles to save the $7,000 for the diesel.

    Only if a 2012 cab could fall onto a shortened flat nose blue bird bus frame.... Most came with a p pumped 12valve and a Allison auto..... Dependable and fuel efficient.

    Dependable.... yes.... fuel efficient ???? the allison 545 ???

    From what I heard about those transmissions is that they're really stout, nearly indestructible and perfect for plowing snow, but without a 4th gear, will cause the engine to run at a much higher rev, hence the poor fuel economy result.
