    I have a lifted truck and had to modify my 9' x blade by adding plats and re drilling the mounting holes. Will i be able to do that with a 9'6 extreme v? Can someone take close up pictures of it?

    Also. What to check, were to look for issues? It's a used unit for $3500. Thanks.

    Sorry I can't help you- but How high is your truck? Apparently I have L.M.D. because I lift all my trucks. I am thinking about the X series blades, just making sure I won't have an issue.

    The truck is just a little more than level'd. The truck is 19.5" to the middle of the hole in the push plates. I think Fisher told me a few years ago that id be ok if it was 17-19 inches.

    There is quite a bit of adjustability with the XV T-frame and push beam setup. As for trouble with the XV, check the center hinge pin and related components. A few threads here about it

    its best checked with the plow up in the air on the truck. With the wings in the straight position, grab the end of the wing and lift. I don't know what the spec is when evaluating in this manner , but anything more than an inch of movement would raise my eyebrows.
