Has anyone successfuly installed a winch with their Boss plow, if so what mount did you use and did you have to alter it in any way? It looks like the Boss plow mount uses some of the winch mounting hole.
I have the same plow, with a Viper winch installed and no common bolts between the 2. My 2011 800HD is probably a bit different structurally, from the newer 900. A few of the bolts were a real pita with the winch already installed, but it works well.
Because of the way the plow loads onto the mount, I have to let out some winch cable and drape it over to the side of the bumper, then raise the tower structure with the SmartHitch to the locked latch position. My winch hook sticks straight out too far and becomes pinched if left tight in the fairlead. Idk if this will be a problem when plowing as we have not had any snow yet this year, but in transport it was not an issue.
