    On a F250 will a SnowEx 1075 sit below the top of the tail gate? I have a 575 now and there is a cap on my truck. Wanted some more volume but would like to leave the cap on and still be able to open it.

    4" of the spreader sits above the tailgate.
    If you get the pivot mount, you can't keep the cap,
    If you get the hitch mount you may be able to, but you won't be able to open your tailgate.
    The mount for the pivot pro 1075 bolts into the side rails and with the bumper as well.

    Thank for the reply. I kind of figured it may be slightly higher. I wonder if I could modify the mount. On the 575 mount you can move the unit farther away from the truck on the hitch. If the 1075 does that it may help it clear the cap.
