    Had this plow on a 2011 Tacoma & hardly ever folded over. Now it is on a 2014 Silverado & it keeps folding over. Any suggestions

    Plow frame to high on the new truck - trip springs are loose.

    I`m guessing full trip and agree with Maxwell that the mount is too high.

    I have the same problem. I tightened the springs all the way to the locking nut and its better. I think it needs stiffer springs but haven't tried looking for replacements. Some SnowDoggs use double springs.

    Two years ago I was set high at 10 1/2" no issues with trip. Last year I lowered it one set of holes to 9 1/2" and It started tripping. Opposite of what I'm hearing here. I put it back to where I started and we'll see. My springs are fully tighted. No threads showing.

    do you carry a counter weight? My mount is low until I add my spreader and the weight shift raises the front.

    plus you have a lot more truck weight could be just the too little plow for the vehicle effect.
