    Hey guys- Just picked up a new (well... new to me) F-250 with a MVP on it and the thing sits up about 1-1.5 inches on the right side when the plow is lowered. Problem occurs no matter what angle or configuration plow is in. This is my first V-Blade, is this a common problem for them? Thanks in advance for any answers.

    Is one shoe hitting the ground first?
     
  3. Your right wing is probably bent. It is hard to tell but pay close attention to the braces on the back of the blade. If so, get some money back from the dealer, cause replacing that one half is not cheap. Good luck...:mad:

    My guess would be a bent frame on the side that's high. Look for even a slight twisting.

    Sounds like a bent A-frame

    Make sure the push beam is adjusted properly before you assume things are bent,this is a critical adjustment on V's.
