    The push bar they say should be 12 1/2 to 14 1/2 " high.. mine is at 17"... I have No lift on the truck just some 35" tires. Will this effect the way it pushes snow? I bought the 810 Brand New and put the mount on myself. Please advise!

    Your gonna have to make a drop bracked to lower the truck side mount. Or lower the front of your truck alot.

    Hooking it up will not be the end of the problems when your truck is so high. You want the A-frame to be level when its hooked up and the plow is sitting on the ground, or it will not plow properly.

    I think there was a guy on here with a Dodge also, had problems with it being to tall. Probally find the info in this section of the forum. Do a search. I would find it for you, but i gotta make lunch.

    Oh yeah, put up a pic of that truck, Sounds like it looks great!

    i adjusted to kickstand down more that helped. One more question though. There is a pin under where the A-Frame latch grabs the Draw pin. (same as the hitch pins) should that be there? it stops the A-frame from grabbing the draw pin. I took it out. But if it needs to be there i'll put it back in.

    That third pin is for short chaining, emergency transport only

    Here is a link to the thread with pic's of the drop bracket I just made for my f-350. I have a 4" lift and ran into trouble with my plow. Mounting isn't the problem it's plowing with the blade angled. You'll have one end of the plow on the ground and the other up in the air. I run 35's on my truck but only in the summer I go back to stock tires and wheels in the winter. Good Luck!!!

    I checked it out with it angled and it sits on the ground fine. If I go back to the stock tires will that be ok. Check out the pictures i put on here with it on the ground and let me know.

    Thank you

    Your truck looks good!!! The plow doesn't look like it is too high, you'll be fine with smaller tires. No need for a drop bracket. If you have your stock set throw those back on. Theres no reason to mess up those wheels in the winter weather!!! Again nice truck ,Good Luck!!!

    So what is the consensus?? I am looking to buy a Blizzard 800 for my '07 Dodge 2500 and it has a 2" leveling kit and 35" tires...is that going to be too high or will it be alright as is???
