    My buddy was talking with me and we got into a conversation about putting plows on a lifted truck. Does anyone know of a plow system designed for lifted trucks? Or any one know of a successful plow mounted to a lifted truck. Cause I am assuming your going to have to drop the mounting bracket the same amount if not a little more than the height you lifted your truck.
    He had a 99 dodge ram 1500 ext cab sport with a 3in lift and he had a meyer plow on it. That he now has on his 2003 F- 250 ext

    I've got 4 inches of suspension lift in my 79 Ford F150, no body lift. I welded and gusseted new ears on the plow mounts that accommodate the lift. I only went about 2 1/2 inches on the ears and raised the plow guides so I could still see them.
    It's works okay for roads and driveways, but I don't think it is any higher than the f350's and 2500's I park next too.

    That's too much. Way too hard on the suspension.

    Mines got about 3" suspension lift (approximately) and 3" body lift. We took a factory pushbeam and made the brackets to hold them the right length (and suitable thicker material) to set it at the required height.

    Anyone handy with a welder and fabricating can do this.
