    If the plow is new it should of come with directions. Never hurts to go thru that book anyway. The front bumper will have to come off and you will have to drill a few holes.

    I actually just did it. You have to drill 12 holes into the frame, then figure out a way to get the bolts into the back holes that are 2 ft down the frame and hold them to tighten them down. Its a pita but I did it in a few hrs and not working fast on it.

    thanks for the replys, it turns out, I had to call the dealer, on the late build 04 truck the 2 outer tabs for the push beam have to be cut off. Thats what the hole problem was.

    Haha, I untwisted a wire hanger..Twisted it around the bolt head and finagled them through the frame into the holes. I then twisted a nut on each so they wouldnt fall back out.. Then I took my torque wrench, which was barely long enough, and inserted it into the frame so I could tighten them up. Its by far the hardest part of the install.

    Ya, didnt have one. It really wasnt a big issue. I did see the bolt bars but had to improvise with what I had.

    You might want to check the boss distributor in your area. The way I did it didnt take that long but it would have been faster with the bolt bar.

    My buddie gets them from his supplier. I can check. We have made them before. Just weld a rod on the end of a bolt. The bolt bars are nice, you can bend them to shape and run them around corners and stuff in the frame.
