Anyone using a Fisher MM2 on a 2012 2500?

    I am wondering if anyone is having problems with how their MM2 is mounted to the new 2012 2500's. My plow is actually operating fine. I was wondering of there is some sort of adjustment i have overlooked. This past fall I removed the plow from my 2004 2500 and reinstalled it on my new 2012 2500. First thing I noticed was the lower A-arm was angled upwards towards the plow. I removed the pivot pins and raised the A-arm to the bottom hole. The A-arm now rests level (very important due to having a dirt/gravel driveway). It now seems like I have lost a significant amount of working range (up and down height of blade). When raising the plow, the A-arm now hits the plow frame under the pump and limits the blade height. I plan on changing the A-arm height again and use the middle hole to see how it works out. Not sure if this is just a new dodge problem ( low front frame height=low attachment height=lower lifting height)?.
    Just curious if anyone else has experienced this same issue.

    Did you get a new mount or just reuse your old one? Pretty sure they are different between 04 and 2012.

    Adjust it lower, chain will be out of adjustment and you won't be able to lift as high because there is now less space between that crossbar and the A-Frame.
