    Looks a bit funny with the stock rims/ street tires on it.

    Do you even need plow lights? The stock lights appear to reach over the plow.

    Thats a pretty high truck. Nice plow though, the mount seems low to the ground.

    when they made the mount they dropped it the same amount as the truck was lifted. they tried to get as close to specs as they could. i was thinking the same and hope it isn't a problem.

    With your headlights so high you should make that your stock lights and plow lights work at the same time. You can never have too much light.

    That mount is going to look really ugly when the plow is off.

    funny i have been calling my truck big blue for like 4 years, lol looks good, hopefully it does good plowing. in the off season i would just pull the mount off so it doesnt look weird.

    Or to little? The truck's headlight circuits would not like doubling the amp load. the truck would probably start eating headlight switches.

    You would have to wire the plow lights on there own circuit (like backup lights) with a heavy duty switch on the dash. That is the best way to do it.

    That would be a solution if you felt you really need the extra light and amperage draw

    Well there goes all ground clearance, which I might assume was a goal with the lift. Best of luck with it

    Thats a tall truck! Looks nice, I like that body style a lot. I knew a few guys back around high school that used even taller lifted Chevy trucks and they loved having it so tall, they just lowered the mount like you did. I bet the visibility will be good! Lets pray for a bunch of snow, and go make some $$!
