Boss Plow Install

Awesome. Glad you got it working. Both skid plates needed to come off to install. But, both should go back on. The rear metal skid plat that covers the oil pan goes back on after you drill the bolt holes in the cross member. The rear mount pieces go over the metal skid plate. The front plastic skid plate needs to be trimmed and then can be installed again. I’ll take a picture under my truck and post it for you.
I have no skin in the game yet, but I would enjoy seeing what is mounted to the rear cross member. Is this a permanent mount or can does it get removed after season and the truck re-gains full ground clearance?
 

It’s not the rear crossmember. Sorry if that post was confusing. There are two skids plates up front. The furthest skid plate to the back, under the oil pan is the one I was calling rear. It attaches to the front crossmember. Taking the mount off would be about a 4 hour job. A lot of work.
 

Here are a couple pictures of the skids plates. The red circles are the two bolts where the plow mount secures over the metal skid plate. The other pic is the plastic skid plate and where I had to trim it.

Thanks for taking the time to post photos. Is it possible to remove the mount that is up against the front plastic skid plate, that had to be trimmed, easily after season? That skid plate has to be dropped to grease the front ends pitman and idler arm.

Didn’t even think about that. Thanks for the heads up! Yeah, the front plastic skid plate will pull right through the mount.
 

Here are a few pictures of my install. I included the pics of the power module that I installed, plus were I mounted the solenoid. Power came from the fuse box under the hood. I'll post the fuse number soon, I don't have the truck with me now. I did not need to raise my torsion bars. It was 10.5" to the top of the hook which was perfect. I also did not need to cut into the bumper at all. I just removed the two lower trim pieces.
I have questions about your boss plow installed. Would love to get a better picture of the front at a different angle please. Any regrets on cutting the bumper?
 

I see now that you didn't cut the bumper 👌🏼
Correct, I did not need to cut the bumper. You’ll just need to remove the two lower bumper trim pieces. But, you can barely notice they are gone. Here are a few more pics of the front.
