    i have a 03 dodge 2500 when the plow is lowerd the wings hold the center mold bord off the ground about 1" the mount is all the way to the bottom should i cut the cuttin gedge on the wings or put 1/2" plate steel on the side with a piece of 1/4 inch to drop the mout on the truck

    the truck mount need to be about 3/4 of an inch lower for the plow to sit rigth with the truck but i was thinking of lifting the truck in the spring so i would make the mount drop 3 inches longer so i could just lower the mount after the lift was on:help::dizzy:

    I know all about your problem. I have an 07 f350 with a 860sw and last winter when it was new I had the opposite problem( I think I bought the smallest f350 ever). My wing tips were off the ground over an inch. I had to notch my push bar and the bottom of my bumper. Becasue of this I was only able to 6 of the 8 push bar bolts last winter, no problems. Now since last winter I have lifted the truck 4" ( more like 6" since my factory springs were so short) and lowered the push bar as much as I can. I would have your same problem but my wings are worn from the first season of plowing. If your planning on lifting your truck and the mount is already maxed out, a custom drop might be in order. If you make it work right now once you plow is broke in you'll still be good. Don't cut your edges they cost $ too$ much!!! I guess that the speed wings require a more specific mount height than most plows. Good luck keep us posted!!!

    I forgot to add that I am running my stock tires and wheels along with the lift. No need to run nice wheel ,and big tires in the snow!!! With my mount down I am right in blizzard specs!!!
