    Im no expert but can that mess up the frame? screw with the holes for the mounting? also does that change the frames rigidity?

    Trucks might be different but on my jeep the push plates are mounted with 4 bolts for each side, I had to drill 3 or 4 holes (can't remember) and the rest of the holes were already there from the factory. I don't think a few extra holes in the frame hurts anything, they come with a lot of holes already from the factory. It only takes about 20 min to take it off and about double that to put back on,

    It was my first install and I thought it was very easy. I doubt I will ever pay someone to install another one.

    I had one installed and would never pay to have it done again. I put another one on a 2001 hd and it went smooth and I saved about 600.00. As far as the mount goes it is very low on both of my trucks but I had a western and it was just as low, Good luck

    Here are a couple of picts of the mount on my 1999 F150. I was a little worried about the lack of clearance, but it hasn't been an issue. Of course I don't do much off roading.
