    Anyone have any Ideas for mounting the truckside power wires to the bumper? Does Boss offer anything or does anyone have any ideas for attaching them to the bumper? What I have been doing is just tucking the truckside power wires inside the bumper when the plow is not on, but they usually fall inside the bumper and are a pain in the a$$ to get them fished back out when it gets cold outside.

    i just shove mine in enough till the connector is snug between the little opening in the bumper. it doesnt move all summer. boss does make a plate to mount them on but i didnt like it because it was hard to plug the wires in because you couldnt hold them from both ends and push. the dealer just gives them out even though they cost like $10, because im not sure how many people actually use them

    That is what I do with mine, however, they always seem to find their way behind the bumper.

    Thanks for the input.

    Mine are mounted using that bracket that you talk about. They are mounted in the grill and all I have to do is plug them in, I always know where they are, lol. However, trying to find my block heater plug is a different story, thats always stuck and hiding somewhere in the bumper.

    I can't imagine not having the bracket. My bracket is solid never had a problem with it moving while connecting.
