    Why does it have to be mounted on the front? Why not just throw it in the back? Your truck may run a little hot, but you should be fine. You don't have to double post your questions to get a response.

    Put it on the front. Around town driving (slower speeds) the fan should be able to still pull air around the plow and through the radiator. Once on the highway (higher speed) the plow changes the aerodynamics of the truck and your radiator will have trouble getting good airflow. If you drop the plow down as low as you can w/o hitting the ground, a lot of times that will solve that problem. You can run with your plow lower on the interstate than you can around town because you don't have the dips/bumps to deal with. Just be mindful when approaching expansion joints on bridges/overpasses that you may need to raise it temporarily.

    nope.

    or when it gets hot, stop and let it idle with the heater on hot to cool off.
    humm. did you think of transporting it as low to the ground as you can and swung to the side to let more in to the radiator?.

    or get a trailer?.....

    or over think it?
