    With the truck and plow on reasonably level ground about 1"- 1 1/2" will give you the right amount of lifting height and still provide enough float to cover most terrain.

    Yep. You can always fine tune it up or down a link at any time later for your specific needs too. Thats why they're adjustable.

    FYI, there isnt much if any point of setting the blade any higher than the lowest point on the truck, and ive plowed a couple driveways where the drop to the street i could have readjusted the plow way down, but instead just plowed up, speaking of which, another nice feature of the chain drive is that when stacking, it will raise itself automatically.
