    I have a Meyer 7.5 and E60 pump on a 99 F250. My issue is when I raise my blade all the way up it covers my lights. Does anyone know if they make extension to raise these up a few inches? I was thinking of making my own but would like to see what they look like first.

    I spent about 800 dollers to buy / install plow lights on my truck same deal. Now I see why the last owner didn't bother. Why the h@%# did they build them like that.

    Go to a welding shop and have them cut two pieces 2" long of 3" x 4", 1/4" wall tubing. Drill a 1/2" hole top and bottom, two 1/2" x 2" bolts, and you now have to 4" spacers to raise your lights.

    or do what i do, and don't lift the plow all the way up.
    there is no reason to have the cutting edge 2 feet off the ground.

    I'm thinking meyer makes them? I bought a 8ft Commercial Poly and it has the risers for the lights.

    When your plow is that high you are blocking all the air to your radiator. Mine over heats if I keep it that high. It sometime comes in handy when it is really cold out though.

    MIne doesn't overheat. I keep it angled and it's fine.

    I found this metal laying around this morning so this is what I did. It's 4'' extensions. I hope it's high enough but I will find out when it's dark.
