Interest in ultramount drop brackets for Lifted trucks?

    I am currently running a western Ultramount Plow on my Cummins with a 6" lift and 37" tires. I developed a drop bracket to lower the rear of the plow an additional 2-10" lower than the factory adjustments allow. Therefore allowing the plow to function just like it would on a stock height truck. These will work on any make and model truck running an ultramount plow.

    My question is... Would there be a market for these if I were to have a batch of them made up and powder coated? I would include all necessary hardware, making this a complete "kit".

    Don't want to rain on your parade....... You may want to think aboot talking to a lawyer aboot what kind of liability your exposing yourself to but selling these. I'm all for thinking ootside of the box and trying things but it's for my own use.

    Those are nicely made but I still don't like the idea of the force being changed against the original mount. The force of pushing is not as straight on as was intended. I compare it to lifting an IFS truck without kicker bars to support the cross member.

    Without any additional support going to the trucks frame the drop downs will fold the frame rails on the truck easier than in the designed location.
