    Hi,
    nub thing probably is not the real name i have seen them on trucks i
    have owned does anyone know their purpose?
    i bought a newer Meyer plow frame for my 95 f150
    the old mount had custom push plates that were already on the truck
    when i try to line up the new push plates the nubs seem in the way
    should i notch the plates it would only be a small notch or cut off the nubs
    thanks Jr

    the nubs in the pic are under where the cutting was done
    (this is not my truck just a pic to show the nubs:help:

    Hi ,
    thanks for the reply
    I mocked up the newer frame on the truck to see where it would ride
    and its much heavier than my old one and would need more modifications than
    i thought to make it fit so i decided to keep the old one on
    thanks JR
