    I need help figuring out if a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500 with a 6 inch suspension lift is to high for a plow. All my other trucks are either stock height or leveling kits. I'm looking at hanging a fisher on this truck. It also has 35 inch tires with 18 inch rims.

    No The truck has a 6 inch lift sitting on 35s. I can't find any info if the plow will work on that truck or not. Hoping to see if anyone is plowing with lifted trucks and what they had to do in order to make it work

    I'm sure anything is possible with some fab work. I'd stop at a good dealer that does installs with the truck and ask.

    Doesn't that lift make it as high as a common ford?

    "Can it be done"? Yes. "Is it the right tool for the job"? Probably not.

    Searching is your friend! You have few issues to keep in mind. You are giving yourself a larger blind spot in front of the truck and if your tires are wider, reducing traction. You'll be "OK" as long as its not a V which will be more difficult to get the a-frame level in all positions like it should be.

    See this thread for a pic of what you need fabbed to the a-frame:

    There are plenty of other examples you can find, that one is very beefy.

    Running a V on a lifted truck shouldn't be any harder then a straight blade. All blades (V, straight, expanding, etc) work best when the A-Frame is level with the ground.

    Easy as pie. Just have to modify the A frame. I did this with a straight blade and also an extreme v. Leave the truck side alone.
