    I am just about on the verge of buying a new 2013 Ram 2500 Hemi.I would like to put my older 7.6 Boss straightblade on this truck and would like to know how much of a job is it to do.By this I mean how much of the bumper valance or air dam has to be either removed or taken off completely.Thanks in advance and any pics of Members 2500s with a Boss mount would be appreciated.:mechanic:

    I have an 04 Chevy 2500HD and was told I might have to cut the front valance too. Instead I had the tortion bar cranked up and was able to achieve the desired vehicle stance. I also have a 89 Chevy 3500 SRW that we sis the same. They both sport 9-2 VXT's and handle them well IMO.:mechanic:

    i just had my plow put on my 13 ram i'll take a pic of what had to be cut when i get out of work. you do have the trim that plastic bottom piece a bit. I just trimmed a little at a time so that i didnt take to much off. Its 4 slots you will have to make 2 for the hookup part and 2 for where the ends of that mounting beam is.

    so you need to trim the 4 spots i said earlier and a littel bit along the whole bottom between your cuts. Now as you look at this i do have a 2 " leveling kit in the front so mine may sit a bit lower on the plastic than a truck at stock height would be
