    I need to modify my plow mounting height because i have a lifted truck. Using the top holes the a-frame isn't level. Does anybody know what material the a-frame mounting hole metal is? Dimensions also?

    Looking for a shop to do this for my plow. Thanks. If someone could PM me a shop that would be great.

    Man I hope they at least added some gusseting. The higher you get up in the holes (no pun here) the more pendulum effect you have. Got any pics of said “6 wholes”.

    My old boss's 99 was modified and never had any cracking problems. But yea it needs to have strong metal and strong welds.

    Something like that. My old boss's plow only had the mounting ear piece. I don't think my truck is that much higher to need the holes that high.

    That is the way it should be done. Like I stated above. Gussetting at least.
