    I called the local Boss dealer, and was told there is no plow available from Boss for my 05 Chevy Duramax Crew cab. He said he could sell one cash and carry, but definitely would not advise a plow on this truck. Western also would not install a V plow on the truck.
    Do they really expect people wont use the truck for plowing, or expect someone to put a 7.5' straight on a HD 3/4 truck?

    Anybody else have a CC diesel, what are you running, and were you able to talk a dealer into installing?

    Have your dealer do the wiring install and then assemble the plow and put the mount on yourself. It's very easy to do as long as you've got a buddy to help you with some of the bigger components.

    When I put together my MVP I used a cherry picker to hold the parts up while I put the bolts and pins into place. It was a breeze.

    ppl run into this all the time and it sucks. its bc of the axle rating. with the diesel and IF you have ppl in the cab and add a plow you go over the weight rating for the axle. will it hurt antyhing prob not but they have to cover their butts for warrenty claim reasons. put it on your self or sign the weaiver and push some snow.

    Yup, had the same problem w/ my local dealer would not put a 8 ft Meyer C series on my " 99 Dodge diesel extended cab and would not put a plow on my 2004. I went thru a different dealer who insatlled it w/ NO PROBLEM. Boy was my local dealer pissed. He kicked me out of his establishment:realmad:
