    on flat level ground angled all the way left or right the opposite end of the blade is of the ground like 2" either way I angle...the cutting edge is the same height on both sides and maybe a 1/4" taller in the middle...the blade is still able to trip....thoughts / ideas how to fix
    tried to search button no luck

    The most common ones.....

    1) Bent A-frame or nose plate
    2) Worn nose plate/king bolt/sector pivot hole
    3) A-frame not set parrallel to the ground

    Since it does it on both sides I'd say your mounting Hight is wrong AKA A frame not parallel to the ground.

    You have a lift in the truck?

    I had the same problem with mine. I put a 2 inch levelin kit on. F250 and all. We cut the ears off and put a 3x3" square tube on and welded the ears back. Works great now. I will try to get pics tomorrow

    I can tell you right there that it's too high by 2" even at the lowest mounting hole. Need to address that before you go any further.

    Nothing at all wrong with doing that as long as it's done properly. I've done quite many of them myself the same way to address height issues.
