    I've got a new truck on order and am looking into prices on plows. I was wondering if anyone knows a good and talented dealer in upper Illinois? ( Looking for quality install )

    I've checked out the Boss website for dealers but, nothing rings a bell.


    Thanks!

    Awesome work, best installs I have ever seen on any plow trucks, about 80 miles west of Chicago, well worth the drive. :)

    honestly, check out the boss site. they have a dealer section and I know there is one in bartlett, palatine, des plaines mchenry. You can also call Boss and they will refer you to a dealer. my computer was down once so i could not look up the dealer info, I just called Boss and they were super nice and refered me. Good luck!!

    Boss website does have their dealers listed. However, I have no reference point for any of them listed and a few seem like car rental or small tune up shops. I think Monroe in Joliet was the only one that caught my eye but, their facility didn't give me the impression they would do a very clean job. ( I've got an order for the new Chevy HD and given how trucks are built these days I was really looking for someone who can make the cuts in the nose look clean )

    Im telling you go to AMES here in Freeport. He doesnt make cuts unless he really has to and as far as plugs go, they're not just hanging out of the grille or anything. They are mounted to a special plate so it looks like a little cleaner install. Well worth the 1.5 hour drive.
