    I have been thinking about getting a plow as some of you know, but I have a question. Can I use a 4 inch suspension lift and a plow. The thing is I'm not really going into the business of plowing I just have alot of family I want to help out, as well as help plow our church parking lot.

    Does anyone have a lift and a plow?

    You will need to drop the frame mount for the plow to work right. It would work "ok" if you just stuffed it on the truck but it should really be lowered. A truck with a suspention lift aint ideal but its workable. What sized tires outa curiosity?

    The way I have compensated for the lift, was to weld a wedge of steel on each side of the A frame, and then remount the connector ears. If you drop the frame mount, you should probably install braces on the mount to maintain the strength of the mount. You can run a plow without doing either, the only problem you will have, is that the trailing end of the plow won't sit on the ground unless you decrease the angle of the plow, in other words at the full angle, the plow will not set on the ground on the trailing edge. Hope this helps.
