    Searches don't really work because people don't label the threads they start very good. I see alot of "My Truck" and "Look what I did" and "Here is what I plow with".

    For the search to work people would have to label their threads better.

    Oh yeah, my truck is lifted 3" in the front. Does that count :laughing:

    This is very true the title to the thread has to be correct to find what you are looking for, and mines lifted too :D but I still cant seem to upload pictures :mad:

    OR learn to use the search feature to it's fullest.

    You go to advanced search and enter lifted trucks as the key word and search entire threads.

    That still doesn't work. I have tried to search for simple things like 08-10 chevy trucks and you can't even find somthing that simple with the search. I have found that it is easier to go through the threads yourself.

    I have a 4" Superlift on my 06 F250 with 315's and I have NO problem plowing....changed pin holes on the A frame of the plow to the top hole and back to level she was!...Also have 4.56 gears so pushing is not a problem...I have 4" Coils in the front and 6" blocks in the rear to keep the 2" rake...Coils are good, minimal squat in the front end with plow lifted off ground...On that note, I wouldnt go higher then 4" lift on a plow truck as any more might create too much of a blindspot with the height of hood/top of plow etc...I like to see whats going on around me!

    4" SuperLift

    These are the only pics I have without digging around much, from this past fall after I put on the plow tires/rims (still 315's). Just opened a photobucket account so bare with me if it doesnt work on the first shot! These were taken right after I finished up my Fisher MM2 overhaul project...prep, prime paint, fabricated some extensions on the headgear for the Intensifire's, tried to make it look like factory, came out pretty clean looking...I might have to get off of my ass and get some more pics..

    Before someone says something, the stock brake lines were taken off the next day for longer stainless steel braided hose line....I was just waiting on it to be shipped, so the lines had a little less "slack" then usual!

    Did all the Work myself, I had the primer and spray gun, had to buy the Fisher yellow paint....want to take the headgear off this year and really take care of it, as the majority of the attention went to the plow. I think I posted some pics on the Fisher forum last fall, probably under fisher overhaul or something close!
