    I got a 95 F350 dump with a Meyers 9ft blade on it with an e57 pump. I have the plow on the highest mount on the truck and got a little out of the chain but if u go too much on the chain the plow cant go down all the way. pump and lift piston are fine but i wanted to know if anyone had any ideas on how i can get the blade up a little higher off the road? I was thinking of welding the chain where it mounts on the plow frame further back so it is closer to the pivot point on the truck. Thanks guys

    Wouldn't you want to go further away from the pivot point? The closer you are to the pivot point the less lift your going to get.
