    I have a 2003 gmc sierra 2500 hd with timbrens and a new boss 8'2 vxt. 33" tires on 9"rims. My turning radius is cut down a little cause they rub the wheel well. I also have a leveling kit on it. If I leave the plow on in the raised position, and turn the leveling bolts to raise the front end up l" to help in the wheel well, should the plow frame height be dropped down to a lower level or should I just leave it?

    if you adjust the cam bolts up to clear the wheel well and tire's you will have to lower the push beam to the correct height to hook up the plow ! 15 1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole to the ground

    I figured as much , there's three bolts through it now and if I raise it up 1", then to get the push beam back down to 15 1/2" it looks like I'd only be able to fit two bolts instead of three.

    Two bolts will hold it just fine, provided you mean a total of 4 bolts per side, meaning that a total of 8 bolts will be holding the frame on.

    Right, the installer put six on each side and he also said four on each side is fine. Thanks
