Difficulty hooking/unhooking Boss Plow

    I have a 2010 Tundra with a new Standard Duty Boss plow. It works well but there are a couple of annoying issues that I am hoping you guys can help with.
    1.My driveway has a slight angle so the truck is pointing downhill when attaching/detaching. Sometimes I have difficulty getting it on and then again getting it off.
    2. The wiring harness is down low next to the push bar. As a result, when stacking snow, if I'm not careful and raise the bar too soon snow catches the harness and pulls it off the truck. Not a huge deal but I have to then get out and reattach it. Has anybody had these issues and found a solution?

    I also park my truck facing downhill. When I detach the plow, I position it on cinder blocks.

    A floor jack can be your best friend mounting and in mounting a Boss. I would try to reroute your plugs up higher.

    When lowering the stand lift the plow slightly and go one extra hole in the stand, if not your height will not be enough to clear the receiver, this happens a lot on a lot of our plows.

    Remount the harness up in the grill where it belongs
