    I have 87 2500 GMC with an 8'2" V-plow with a 2 inch lift that I had to put on the front to clear the tires. The dealer told me boss does not make a mount that drops down any farther. Has anyone ever lowered one of these mounts, and if so how. Even with the plow all the way down when In the V it will not sit flat. Thus not clearing all the [/COLOR] snow![/COLOR] :help:

    DON'T DO IT -

    Drop the truck back down, Boss has strict ISO 9000 / 01 guidelines the company must keep in order to be certified as an ISO company. I've worked in an ISO company and there is no way they would sell odd ball things like that. After-market maybe, but you'll probably end up in a weld shop if you go through with it.

    Just my .09 cents worth....

    If your mount is like the Boss mounts on my trucks , I think you could weld extensions on the side plates to drop the center beam lower.

    I'll try to get pix of my setup tonight.... not sure how well it will show up as EVERTHING is black under there! lol

    Mind you, my mount was made from a Ford F350 mount, but the concept would be the same....

    Whatever you do, its gotta be BEEFY! By making the mount longer you are increasing the stresses EXPONENTIALLY!

    It should work, I mounted a 7'6" Boss V on a 91 GMC with a 4" lift. The mounting kit was off of a older style Chevy. You just have to make sure the main support beam is set to the correct height( I think it is 12 1/2" to the center of the pins on mine) and make sure every thing is done on a level floor so you can level and center the beam. Then I added two more braces that go back to the frame for extra support do to the longer drop. I used it all last year with zero problems. Remember Measure 3 times cut once!!!!!!
