    I have a 2001 F250 SD with the 73 and a 9 foot Diamond plow, my question is on ground clearace. Is there any way to easily lift the front end at all to get the plow frame up.

    Steve what seems to be the problm. is it the plow bieng heavy? or do you need ground clearance for off road? if the first try some timbrens if the second you will need a lift kit.

    No the problem is the clearance of the plow frame It seems to get hung up alot plowing I seem to dig it out alot Maybe timbrins are the answer. I dont notict the drop with the weight but it may be there

    I Installed an extra leaf on the front of my F350 extended cab PSD.
    Raised up the front end 2.5".
    They only took about a half a day to install.
