    Does anybody know the exact difference ( and perhaps specs/measurements of the 06+ smartlocks and ones for the 05 and older plows? Thanks.

    The older cylinder has a larger butt end diameter than the new SmartLock cylinder. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact our Technical Service team at 800-286-4155 ext. 2.

    What do you mean by butt end? By where it mounts or where the end seal is? Are they at all interchangeable?

    The end that attaches to the ccenter hinge. Not the wing end.

    Yes, where they mount to the center section, one is like 1.5", the other is 2.5" thick.
