    We have a Boss TGS1100 spreader on the back of a 2009 f250, just noticed today that the passenger side support arm has hit the tailgate. Some how it moves while in use, it has the RT3 hookup and has only been used 4 events. Anyway of fixing it so that it doesn't move? The driver side arm seems fine and sits back further on the bumper.

    Cant see the small dents in the pictures but u can tell the top of the bolt put a dent in it along with the actual metal part of the arm right about the rubber supports.

    Do you need the tailgate on? Maybe you could use a piece of wood or one of those net gates. I hated that design the second I saw it.

    Never knew there were 2 holes (was just installed a few weeks back). Will check into that.

    Those damits still have to be on the bumper though right? So moving the hole won't matter.

    Put a piece of mud flap there.
