    I bought a 2004 model year western 8' pro ultra mount. Will i have to cut my front valence on my 2002 chevy 2500hd? Dealer say i will have to. I don't think i will though. Can anyone fill me in? Thanks:)

    They will always tell you that. As for my 02' F- 250, I roto-zipped semi-circles around the receiver brackets after test fitting. It looks pretty good. As far as GM goes I am not sure, but I am willing to bet you can do the same.

    It all depends on what version of the mount you have. There are 3 versions of that mount and even though you have an 04 plow you may have a revision 2 for that mount (some dealers like to dump the old stock on sub dealers and hope the buyer doesnt know the differance).

    The easiset way to tell is to take your tow hooks off and put the mount up in place, if the bolt holes from the side are close your in luck, if your a ways off from the bolt holes and pushing against the air dam, your goin to have to trim.
