    have an 89 jeep grand wagoneer with a 7'6 Fisher speedcast full hydro setup. has 31" tires and 4" lift springs all around. the A frame is not level at all. Trying to figure out the best way to make it level. would adding to the A frame mounting points or somehow redo the truck frame mount. it TRIPS way to easy.. especially in dirt/gravel roads. any ideas?

    Most guys just extend the tab on the back of the a-frame. Probably the easiest and cheapest way. Make sure you put a gusset on it.

    I'd agree. Modifying the A-frame is the way to go in my opinion. As an added bonus, the mount doesn't hang really low when the plow is off.

    As 2COR said, you'll need to strengthen the modification with gussets, as the load force will no longer be directly into the a-frame.

    make sure you layer weld the mounting tab extension, its better to over do it then to have your plow drop to the ground in front of you going to your next driveway...lol...and lik 2cor mentioned, make yourself a gusset ( on the thick side) and weld her up!
