    I just let the plugs hang loose through the hole in the bumper on my F-Series. I found it is easier for hook up and doesn't come apart when backdragging alot of snow. When plow is removed, I tuck them in behind the bumper.

    Same here. I go for the stealth look when unhooked.

    I cut the hook off my Tow Hook and made a mount for mine. Looks clean and works well. Its not very often I need both hooks.

    I just mounted mine today. I bent up a bracket out of 1/2" X 1/8" steel and ran it across the air opening in the bumper. It is fastened to a bolt on each side that hols the bumper cover , grill, & bumper together.

    Sorry cant help with the chevy mounts, but on my superdities I took out the tow hook on the drivers side and put the plug there. I think the wire is run down by the radiator support and out the bumper hole.

    Here's mine, if your going to put them there, put them more to the right. The plow frame pushes against them where they are now.

    That's what I do on my 07 F-350

    Can't see them when the plow is off and I tuck them in the bumper once plugged in as well.

    One is the 2008 and the other is the 2002. The 08 I'll tuck it inside somewhere after the season.

    I like that ^^^^^^^ setup alot but need my tow hooks.

    Mine used to be mounted with brackets in the grill and I liked it but I got tired of always seeing them there. I relocated the power right next to the DS tow hook and havent decided what to do with the other connector yet.

    My '06 F250 has a bracket welded to the inside of the left (drivers side) tow hook. Nice spot. -Sorry I don't have a picture... But it works and looks good. IMO.

    Here you can see it plugged in and the plugs are tucked behind the bumper by the driver's side tow hook.

    This was when I just picked up the plow. Still need to put the wire loom on.

    Yep, seen this site mentioned on a few of the ford forums.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Did you ever take your truck to A-Tire?
