    I have an 04 Ram 2500 and am in the process of buying a used MM2. My truck has a 4" lift and 35" tires, is there anything I have to do to compensate for this? Thanks, Mike

    Meaning will I have an issue with the plow on my lifted truck? Is there anything I have to do to the plow to compensate for the height of my truck? I know Westerns can be configured for different truck heights, is it the same for Fisher's??

    Where the plow has 3 rear holes, you will have to weld a plate and re drill the holes so that the a frame is level. I have posted pics of my set up if you search.

    The A-Frame won't be level. It will wear the cutting edge funny. Any welding shop can do it cheaply.

    Would you happen to know the MAX height that the frame can be on the truck to work properly?

    The max height of the pushplates is 19" from the ground to the center of the pushplate hole. This is a FMVSS regulation.

    Ok cool, before I do anything else, i'll put the push plates on and measure. Right now I have a western ultra mount frame on my truck, any idea if the holes in the Fisher push plates are the same height or close to the ultra mount holes?

    Not sure, that is what John Murphy at Fisher told me. I had asked about an extreme v, but the height requirements should be the same for all.

    I just measured the Ultra Mount frame on my truck, from the ground to the center of the pin hole is 20". Like I said i'm not sure how much different the Fisher push plates are compared to the ultra mount frame is, in regards to height of pin holes.
