    Hello everybody, I have a 2015 GMC Canyon with a 2 inch front leveling kit by rough country, it is recommended I add another 2 inch suspension lift, what is out there that you guys recommend?

    By the plow company, not lifting high enough, which brands are the best and would work?

    Is the plow not lifting high enough because the truck squats to much with the extra weight of the blade or the mount isn't high enough?

    Lifting the truck and leaving the mount high will increase your lift height but it will also decrease how well the blade scrapes and the angle it hits the ground at.

    The plow only raises to 9" (level ground to bottom of blade), leaving it very unsafe to drive, the plow cannot be adjusted any higher, this is there solution.

    Can you post pics of your truck with plow (on the ground and lifted)?
    Also pics of the mount?
    Counter weight behind rear wheels?

    Id be looking at a set of Timbrens ( http://timbren.com/products-page/ses/GMFCCA/ ) for the front. It wont lift your truck any, but it will take the sag/squat out when the plow is up, in turn, allowing your plow to be raised to a safe height...

    Im not sure how much more serious I can be... I have plowed with a GMC Jimmy (S10) and had similar problems with my blizzard plow. I then installed a set of timbrens and never had a problem again.

    I doubt you will get anyone to give up their phone number...

    How are timbrens gonna help if when i raise my plow my truck only sinks about 1 inch, the timbrens are not gonna help when they wont even be touching at any point ever. The issue is the plow is designed poorly, does not raise high enough.

    You still have not identified what plow you have. An inch is an inch, although im guessing it sinks more than that. Adding weight behind the rear axle (called ballest) along with the timbrens would likely help, but what would I know, ive only been doing this for 20 years now...
