    How high is too high for the truck side?? My frame measures just shy of 16" to the center of the hole. Aside from a steeper moldboard angle is thier any down side to this?

    Blizzard specs are 12 1/2 inches to center of push bar. IIRC

    Accelerated wear on wing edge is the negative factor on increased pushbar height. Positive factor is more down force for better scraping as the a frame is pushing down in reference to the molboard.

    What truck, what size tire, etc?

    I just had an 810 installed and I was told that Blizzard recommends 12.5" to 14.5" of frame height. Mine was at just under 12". I had the torsion bars adjustued so it is now just under 13.5".

    I can drop mine 2 more inches but the shop has a steep entrance over the muni sidewalk. I can back in but would like to drive in if possible.

    Plowboy21 my friend had the same issues with his dodge and a boss. He just made some plates to bolt to the crossbar to extend the frame dwon. Been like that for 4 years with no problem.

    You don't want it to high. The Blizzards don't have much play in them, the leading edge will be trying to dig in all the time and wear quicker.
