    Have any of you guys found a way to conceal your connectors when you disconnect your plow. Mine come out from underneath the grill over the top of the bumper on my '02 HD and when I'm unhooked my connectors just dangle over my bumper infront of my license plate. I have no room to tuck them back any where. Any ideas would help.

    I ran my connectors for my unimount through the two small vent holes in the top of the bumper on my '01 HD. The look pretty unobtrusive in there. I left the zip ties a little loose so I could stuff them back in the bumper when not in use.

    No..There's not a big enough opening for the plugs to go through.

    I would either run them down under the bumper on top of the truck mount, or squeeze them into the holes you have in the bumper. Which is what I did. I also saw a guy that ran them behind his headlight. When he was done using the plow he simply pulled the pin on the light and tucked them behind it.

    This is my winter set up. not really pretty, but worked well and easy in the winter. During the summer I would tuck them back into the grill.

    Hey Bad Luck.. I tried to squeeze 'em in the vents in the bumper but my plug is twice the thickness as First Time Outs plug so they wouldn't pass through. I went out and got some velcro, now I can lay the connectors flat on the top of my bumper. At least now their not flopping around. THANKS GUYS FOR THE FEED BACK!!!!!

    I have mine run through the small openings in the bumper cap. I have 3 wires. The two are plugged together and tucked in. The third is zip tied to the small piece that seperates the vents. If you would like I can get some pics.

    Mine are run through the slots on my bumper, just under where your wires are hanging. When not in use I just tuck them back in the slots and they stay in place.

    Here ya go. The bracket mounts over the end of the frame rail and bolts to the same location as the plow frame.Basically its a shelf that the factory bracket mounts to.And yes you do have cut off a tow hook.I hardly ever use those things anyway.
    Clear or not its a simple idea and makes things look clean.And its easy to use!!!

    Very nice set up. Looks like it came from the factory (that is a good thing in this case :D ).

    I haven't used the Curtis yet. I bought it new this year (April or May). I have hooked it up and played around with it. Seems to be really well built and very easy to use. Mounting it up is a breeze. I have plowed with just the bucket and the plow is so much easier. Power angle, everything. I love it. Well worth the money. IMO, there is no other tractor application that comes close. Hope this helps!
