    I've attached pictures of the Timbrens installed on my 2007 Ford... It certainly looks like a tight fit between the right-side brake line and the Timbren mount. Also included a picture of my plow. Shiny and new, just waiting for snow!

    so u didnt crush the break line? My timbrens fit tight all the way to the frame. Most certainly no way to get them over the break line without crushing them. I had to follow the break line, unsnap it from the frame so I could get lots of room and I put the timbren under the break line. Then VERY carefully kinda formed the break line back into place but over the timbren. All is good so far with no break issue or rubbing issues. Thanks for your input. Let me know what you think. Plow is mounted up and pics coming soon.

    I'm hoping the mechanic didn't crush it ... no problems yet but I know it was a tight fit for sure...
