    Thanks for the info. Do you ever have problems with the loading hose melting against the loader muffler?

    Hey drm - could you post multiple pictures of your truck loader frame?
    I have 1999 gmc 3500 with same BG loader, currently on swing away on rear, but it stops me from towing trailer
    I have the western plow mount on front as well...

    It is illegal in mass I read it in another post from a couple years ago. It has to do with obstructing the drivers view. But it all comes down to the mood of the cops or commercial enforcement.

    Nothing to do with blocking the view, its actually more to do with that by having it mounted to the frame it impedes the prpose of the bumper. The crush rate of the bumper does very little when you have a steal frame in front of it. Same reason why it is illegal to have a plow on yor truck from may 1st to nov 1st unless their is a freak snow storm. One of my trucks got stopped by the state police trck team a few weaks ago, the only thing they got it for was having the trailer ball in the reciever. The hitch sticks out about 6 inches from the bumper, we got nailed with a $200 fine for it
