    My 2007 I removed one of the "never used" tow hooks and mounted my power wires there. My new 2009 I have no clue what to do with them, right now their just sitting behind the front license plate down in the bumper.

    Do you have any idea's for the 09 MY, if you've done it already a picture or two would greatly be appreciated :D

    Had a new mount for an existing Boss plow put on an '09 F250 where I work recetntly. The Company installing it put it in the bumper, behind the liscense plate. They said it would be out of the elements in the summer and also out of sight when not in use. Seemed logical. They would have had to cut the h**l out of the air dam under the bumper to fit the mount there.

    All the newer Fords I have seen the power and control wires were just tucked into the bumper like you mentioned. Seems to look OK to me?

    Electrical Plug In on a 2010 Superduty

    This is where my installer locates his hook ups on some of the newer Superduty's.

    I ended up making a bracket and mounting it to the lower part of the bumper with Stainless Steel screws, works and looks great, check it out.

    Had the license plate from the old truck, thought I'd throw it on. V-10 is very nice, only have about 800 miles on it so far but I'm over all impressed.

    Getting 11 MPG city and 13 on the highway, not sure if it will improve anymore or not, only time will tell.

    Actionpower you have any pictures of your truck, what I read in your sig. it sounds very nice
