    Same issue here.... Does not seem to damage the cylinder, just a little scratch on the cylinder. I was just thinking after time it might "dig" into the side of the cylinder. By the way I have a 8' Super Duty straight blade. Hope we get an answer?

    Yeah, that was my concern too, that over time it would dig into the cylinder.

    this was a problem with the earlier boss plows,they seamed to have it corrected for the most part.i know a man with one put on in 1997 it scrape's,but is still going strong!he ride's it hard and puts it away wet,on a 94 f250 diesel this guy is a road warrior! don't worry it wont fail
