    Has anyone made a bracket for the a-frame to lower the plow for a lifted truck? I am thinking of a bracket that would basically create a forth hole on the a-frame to make it lower to the ground.

    Thanks for any help!

    2 ways to do it.

    1 cut off the stock ear's and have new ones fabbed up that are taller with holes moved up and also come out to the a-frame for more reenforcement and weld them back on.

    or this guy i found pics of few years ago did a simple bolt on setup. http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=66388

    just found this post but I have a lifted truck and have modified my plow by welding some plates on the a frame and it works great it is also set up so it can be converted to stock if it return to a normal truck, I used a 2 ft piece of steel that is 1/2"x6" and cut it from corner to corner to make one for each side of the a-frame then you can use 2 ft of 1.50 square tube for the jack,

    If you look at my profile and the pictures there you will see my Fisher plow on a my Ram that has a 6 inch lift and I run 35's. I can get better pictures if you like me too. I used 3/8 steal plate and bent the steal in the same way as the stock ears that are on the plow. I punched a new hole in the steel and weilded it place. We have a press at work that can bend up to 1/2 steal can the bend looks just like the one that was in place. The install looks stock and thats what I was going for. I'm sure bolts will work and I did build a set up that I could have used bolts, but it looked like S**t and not a clean install. Also did the same thing for a friend here in Pa and once again a happy friend and a few dollars in the old back pocket

    Modify the A-frame like this. Any fabrication shop should be able to do it. I made mine like this and it took 4 hours to do.
