    Alright looking for anyone in the chicagoland area or midwest that has or knows someone who can legitimately fabricate and reinforce the boss rt3 plow mounts for lifted trucks. I have two lifted trucks I am adding boss plows to and know of a few other guys looking to do the same. There is a potential for someone to make a ton of cash here!!! I would do the mods myself but I am a mediocre welder/fabricator so I am looking for a pro. No hack jobs please! Thanks guys.

    Both of my Fords are f-250 super dutys in the 99-07 category. Both have 5" lifts. Boss states 13.5" on center for the mounting holes on the push beam. Right now I am between 16" and 17" on either truck.
     
  2. Just add side plates and bolt it up

    I just leveld my f350 front 2.5" I wonder if I have to do anything to the plow frame?

    Anybody with similar experience?

    Is that 13.5" from ground?

    ~edit
    Just checked the manual and it says 15.5" to center of the holes on the hooks

    it is actually quite simple to fix get your self a 4' chunk of 1/4 x6 flat steel. figure out where you mount has to be. measure the total height of mount and push bar on the side. Cut flat steel. mark hole. drill. Bolt. Takes about 2-3 hours . I ran a truck for 2 years this way no bending or anything. Total cost maybe $50 Local fab shop wanted $500

    I just measured mine and Im at 16.5" roughly and the manual states 15.5" Should I even worry about it, just leave it as is or should I try and drop the push bar down?

    Thoughts?
