    I have a 8 foot super duty straight blade on a 2013 F250. Has anyone put a front trailer hitch on this type truck with this setup? Thanks.

    Pretty sure most the plow mounts for the newest Super Duties all use the bottom of the frame and replace the blocker beams. As far as I know that is also where the front receivers all mount as well. The older trucks 08-10? maybe earlier had a receiver that mounted to the bumper/tow hook bracket inside the bumper.

    I haven't seen that setup for the newer trucks, but is something I've thought about fabbing. Only way I think we can get a winch on our trucks and not mess with the plow.

    Front hitch receivers are not as useful as one would think. I guess if you have a winch on a hitch mount, then it probably is worth it, but for moving trailers, they pretty much suck.

    I had a Bodiak on my 02 Excursion. Don't know if they make them for the later models. Never used it for trailer. Only for mounting a front platform to carry my Genny when I was towing my trailer where there were no hookups.

    Its a brand to look into anyway.
