    I have a 2005 GMC YUKON XL 3/4 ton. I put a level kit and a new severe duty fan clutch. This took care of the over heating at high speeds. Thanks to the information I gained from this site.

    Now I am tripping a lot. My plow is a Boss super duty strait blade. What is the proper plow angle. And how do I determine that.

    Thanks for any advice.

    i know nothing about boss plows but to the best of my knowledge, regardless of what brand plow you have the A-frame is supposed to be level with the ground when on a flat surface. it could just be that your springs aren't tight enough. see if you can get the specs on them from boss and check them. i'm sure others on here will have better opinions and advice for you, good luck :)
