Yes it does rock around. I have thought about triangulating the system but haven't figured out how yet. The rocking is coming from the plow unit, not the mount on the truck. If you look close at the second pic you can see that the receiver is triangulated to the frame.

Yeah, I've read that. I'm a little worried about the mount but will be keeping a real close eye on it. Thanks for the heads up tho.
