    Try to copy and paste this to the BOSS plows forum. Might get an answer. I have my plows installed by the dealer, I am no help.

    Mount the solenoid close to the battery, I usually try to use existing holes to mount to. I'm not sure if the 09 has the hole through the firewall for a clutch or not but if it does use that. On my 12 I used the main harness pass through for the wiring harness. The directions for the plow call for drilling a 1-1/4" hole in the firewall.

    Thanks, that was great advice. I didnt want to drill thru the firewall. You were right on with the solenoid placement. I have it all in and working now,
