    yeah 4inches from stock, it was sagging a little.. also when i have 700lbs of sand and bags have 50psi that truck floats over the road, like its riding on air!

    Had an 03 1500Reg cab long box, cranked the TB and added 3leafes and arch to the back axle. Had the same ride height as yours. Held up the plow/salter great but the plow ended up having the wrong geometry for the A frame.(vs stock ride height) When the front went up the angle of approach of the blade increased and the blade would NOT sit level at full turns (left or right). Hook up your blade before the next snow and give it a try.

    very nice truck. before i even looked at your location i knew you had to be from CT because of the color of the ground.

    Happened on a 26 series snoway plow. The A frame had to go down more but the adjustment on the mounting kit was at its lowest setting allready. The other way around this issue is to loosen up the king pin , allowing more slop in the blade. Actually this option works great on the sidewalks where you can only get two wheels on. Sometimes those old worn out blades work butter in cleaning uneven surfaces.
