    I dont have any pictures of my truck but when the blade was installed last year, my installer told me that they won't have to cut the air dam if there were at least 265 tires on it and the t-bars cranked up about 4 turns.

    I just installed one on my partners truck and we had to notch out a little bit of the dampner. Remember, the center holes on the mount need to be 15 1/2" from the ground, so make sure you get the mounting height right.

    no need

    you do not need to notch anything. You just need to push up harder. use a jack to push it up into place. it will fold/push the plastic up, giving you enough space to bolt up your plow.:help:
