I just recently purchased my first snowdogg EX 80 and installed it on an 08 Chevy Duramax crew cab. The installation was fairly simple by using the instructions. When installing the mounting bracket we had a problem when one of the bolt holes did not line up so we had to drill press a larger opening. The bracket does hang low similar to a boss. The wiring went well and was plug and play as long as you have the correct pigtails for your make and model truck. The plug that goes through the firewall requires a 1.5" hole to get the rectangular shaped plug inside the truck. I felt like Snowdogg could do a better job making that plug a different shape to reduce the size hole we needed to drill into the firewall (or maybe its designed that way for a reason). The plow itself is built very well and near impossible to beat the price compared to Western, Boss, Hiniker or Fisher (these are the dealers near me that I compared with). There are a couple grease fitting on the plow that I figure will rust over time and need to be replaced. The stainless blade and the well built construction paired with a price $1000 cheaper then competitors sold me. The biggest problem I have is when it comes time to hook up or dismount. Like many others I used youtube to watch a video on hooking up. Lets just say that video is not how it works on my truck. I find it extremely difficult to line up the large pins that slide from the plow to the bracket on the truck. The plow comes with a trailer style jack to raise and lower the plow to line up the pins, but for some reason on my truck the pins just don't want to line up correctly. Dismounted is much worse, raising the jack up just enough to relieve the pressure off the pins is the goal. The plow has kick tabs to release the pins off of the "truck side bracket". After many raising and lowering of the jack stand and numerous kicks on the kick plate, a metal piece bent on my plow not allowing the pin to slide off of my truck. I have not contacted my dealer yet about the bent piece, I am hoping it is covered under the two year warranty. Frustrated and disappointed to have to work so hard on a new investment.
