    you should start by reposting what you tried to say, but in the re-post you should use periods (.), and commas (,). That way people will know what it is you are trying to say. I tried reading it a few times and it still doesnt make sense to me.

    Get on some of the diesel truck forums and ask around . There are plenty of guys that would swap your lift for their stock setup.

    You will most likley have to fabricate something, I know the western pro plus plows, you can adjust the height to a certain extent but I dont think that much, try not to keep re posting this site get slow as it is.

    So basically what you are asking if you can plow with an 8" lift on your 2005 F-350 you bought recently. What plow are you looking to get. Yes you will most likely have to fabricate as it has been stated before.

    Use the search function on the gray line above the forum.. Search: Plowing with a lifted truck. There should be information there. For the most part the plow has to be parallel to the ground. This gives you the correct attack angle to plow with. A good welder / fabricator should be a great help to get it done.

    yes you can plow with an 8 inch lift, but you will need to do some serious modifications to the plow mount to make it work.
