    Whats going on everyone.

    I just bought a 2005 ford f250 from a dealer. its in amazing condition. but the only thing is that its lifted only 2-3 inches. When I bought the truck the guy who had it before me had a plow on it but took everything of of the truck push plate,wiring etc.... The thing is do i need to modify any of the mounts when I buy a plow. I heard from some people your good with no modifications up to a 4 inch lift and just mess with the chain to the plow and your good.

    If anyone can help that would be cool.
    Thanks for your time- Tom

    Not all plows have chains. It will probably be ok but might mess up the angle at which the blade should be setting on the ground.

    Oh but what size tires? You could run into problems if they are tall. Your mount may have to be extended down.
