    well, after putting it off and lookin at the mount and pile of hardware in the corner of my garage for the last month, i finally got the kick in the ass i needed to get goin on this install. this is only my 3rd year plowing and my first boss plow and install. needless to say, took my time, read the instructions as vague (sp?) as they were and managed to knock out the mount install in about 4 hours, finished just in time to catch the puck drop for the hawks game :drinkup: . happy how it turned out and was a lot easier then i thought it would be. now time for the wiring :help: . plow is almost done with the complete rehab so need to get this stuff done. cant wait to post pictures of it when its done, definately gonna be something a lot of people havent seen, stainless boss plow? ;)

    I think it's the angle the pic was taken at. Plus the bumper is off to expose more of the mount. But it looks to me like the push bar is mounted as far down as possible like mine and I have a 250 with a 350 leveling kit and 350 rear blocks. So that should be right since mines exactly at 15.5 inches to the center of the hole like boss states

    Believe it's just the angle of the pics. Looks about right when you know how they're supposed to look.

    sorry for the delay, workin on gettin the plow put together...my plow guy is welding on a new kickstand sleeve, broke the eyelet when i was unloading the plow of a trailer. the mount does looks low in the pictures but its dead nuts at 15 1/2. its all stop suspension but has 295/70/17 terra grapplers. my 6500lb springs should be goin on anyday now too, hope its not gonna make me have to readjust the mount again. pictures comin as soon as i can get this thing put back together, i wanna get it goin as much as i wanna show it off
