Need taller V Plow Marker Guides

    Since my truck sits a little taller than factory I can't see the passengers side plow marker on my new extreme V plow while it's down. I was wondering if anyone has had this issue and had fabricated something to make a taller guide. If Fisher Guide's bolted in from the side like most other brands I could simply go buy a set of Meyer or Western Guides and bolt them on but I'm not going to drill a hole in the side of one of outer most braces when I'm sure I could fabricate something, and I'd imagine I'm not the first person with this problem. I've thought about a piece of all-thread and a coupler, then someone mentioned getting a piece of colored flexible plastic pipe, sliding it over the existing marker and zip tying it to hold it on. I think the Western Guides are hollow, and if they are I could buy them, cut the bottom off and slide them over the existing marker. Any ideas? Pictures? Thanks in advance for the ideas!

    Winter Equipment sells 36" tall guides. They're bigger and almost indestructable.

    But do they both to the side or from the top? Fisher Guided mount from the top, not to the side like most other manufacturers? I will take a look at them thanks

    Doesn't look like it. Still a better guide though.

    I'd make up a plate to bolt these to. Or drill holes in the side of the moldboard like every other plow mfg does.
