    Just curious which plow sticks out the least amount.
    I was thinking it would be easier to manuvere the vehicle and put less stress on the frame and truck.
    Your opinion is appreciated
    Thanks

    Any V plow But I have a western MPV and a Boss I think the Boss hugs the truck better
    Truck mounts the Western are the best during off season 2 pins and the mount is off the truck

    Boss V is closest, but you're talking a mere 6" or less here.
