    I had a truck a long time ago that did the same thing. It had nothing to do with the way the plow was mounted but it did have to do with the truck just being plain worn out. The truck had been used for plowing and every other use you can think of for years and the frame had weakened so much that when you raised the plow it actually caused the frame to hump like a camel and it would jam the door on the drivers side. When the plow was off the doors worked perfectly.

    My first rig was an '88 F150 with a 7'6" blade. It pretty much did the same thing. It was the frame that rusted out and sent it to its grave.

    RIP .....

    Go back and have your buddy take a look at his frame.

    Right behind the front wheel.
    Take a look at the holes in the frame .
    This is the crumple zone.
    The frame may not be rotted but I bet it is cracked.

    It is ripping apart from plowing.
