Just had a brand new MVP3 stainless 9.5' V-Plow installed on a 2014 Ram 3500. It looks to me like the truck side mounts are out really far. About 4"-5" past the bumper. When the plow is attached it's all really far away from the truck too. The head unit is over a foot away from the grille. At a full V the corners of the blade are well over a foot away from the bumper of the truck. We have multiple trucks at work with Western straight blades and none are this far away from the truck. I'm curious as to why this is. My 2002 F250 was all much closer to the truck also. I felt when I ordered the plow I was pushing it for weight with a 3500 but now add to that the distance from the truck that 1000+lbs. is multiplied in my opinion. The truck carried is good but holy hell, you sure know it's there! Being a crew cab long bed with the plow 4'11" in front of the bumper makes city streets challenging! Is this just the way it has to be on a Ram or is this something Western thought was a good idea?
