    Hey Fellas,
    I Just Got An 810 Mounted To My F-250 And The Factory Lights That Were Installed Don't Seem To Hardly Shine Over The Blade. The Installer Says That There Is Not Any Other Bushings Or Spacers To Make The Lights Sit Higher, Doesn't Make Sense To Me. Has Anybody Else Had This Happen.

    Thanks And Cheers,

    Dave

    You can put an 8611 light tower on it. They are a few inches taller.

    I had the same problem with my 810. I have to take my truck into undeveloped areas. Keeping the blade up as high as possible is key in doing so the lights were not high enough ,also with the rubber snow deflector at speeds over 50 mph the flap covers half the lights so I order 8611 lights.

    I have had customers with a similar problem, I just made a spacer block to raise the lights the required amount higher.
    For example, to raise them 3", I cut 3" square tube 2 1/2" long, drill holes in the top and bottom, clean, paint, install the riser with a bolt to the factory frame, and bolt the light to the top. Modify the dimensions to suit your problem.
