    This is not my first install of a snow dogg mount but today is not going great so far. Truck is a 2000 f250 getting a hd/ex mount. The truck has a 4in lift and i cant tell if that my problem or the mount. I cant get the side plates to fit at all. Everything is in the way. When i did this on my 2001 f250 i dont remember having any issues like this. Does any one have pictures of their install on a 99-04 f250?

    I can take some, what's the issue you are having? Can you snap a pic?

    Did you remove the cross beam from the truck? Did you unbolt the side braces for the bumper?

    It always says to remove the blocker beam. What is that? I have never removed anything on these trucks and the plow always mounts just fine. And i have no side brackets for my bumper? And i found my problem was too long of bolts for the leaf springs. Few quick cuts and im back on track to get this done tonight for our 1-3" tomorrow.

    Awesome, maybe your truck didn't have that beam installed? Odd that the side supports weren't there. Either way I'm glad you got it figured out.

    Does anybody have pictures of their mount that was modified for a lifted truck? Mine needs to come down 3" for current tires. But i might put the 35s back on if I already have to modify it.

    Plus 2. 1 1/2 angle x 5" I drilled holes on one side to line up with the right an left frame supports then had it welded to the new upper support see pics....for some reason my left side was higher than the right side see pics in back of upper support
