    I am installing a BOSS plow on my 2000 Chevy 2500 and the plastic on the bottom of the bumper seems to be in my way. Squishing the bumper a bit the mount sits 13" off the ground where the manual says it should be arond 15.5". Has anyone else run into this problem? Do I take the piece off and have it look funny? Any suggestions would be appreciated or if you could send me somewhere that has a pic. Thanks.

    What he said. Also, you could (if you havent already) turn your torsion bars up a couple (2-4) turns to give more ground clearance.

    2nd Newdude and RacingZR. If it's a straight blade, the height doesn't have to be perfect.

    at the back of the torsion bars are small adjustment bolts ,measure were the truck Set's now if you have the mount on from the ground level surface to the center of the attaching hole on the mount .crank the bar's up to get the required height make the front end level .they torsional pressure to the bars that is a twisting force that lift's .and then you will have to have the front end realigned
