    I am using Chevy Silverados 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks with snoways and western plows and there is such a low clearance from the cutting edge of the plow to the ground when raised. I spotted a Chevy Silverado with a boss snow plow and the clearance was so much more than my trucks that it makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the company that is installing them. I have the tiberens in all the trucks with plows, any ideas??

    Yea, how high up are the edges that you have? And why is this a big deal?

    Some of the places we plow have such a low clearance getting in and out of we are always scrapping entering or leaving.

    Boss plows are not chain lift. Even so mine scrapes one in a while, but I have wings also.

    Some property's may require straightening the blade or blades (if a V) to avoid scraping going in and out.
