    cant get myself to buy it from BOSS for two hundred plus.... I c it comes with plates for top of plow... Does that mean the C channel that's on top of my SS dxt is removed and not used for the install.? Thinking on getting some belt material to use,not sure on how wide these pices need to be..

    I had a hard time paying over $200.00 but I bit the bullet and bought from these guys,

    And a video of the install.

    Sooo, you spend 6k or so on a fancy stainless plow but can't spend the extra 200 for the correct flap? I just buy it when I purchase the plow. It's 3% of the plow purchase.

    Do not remove the channel. You drill right through it. I have a poly, same setup.
