    So with this random Nor-easter garbage that came in here today, I quick got my plow on the jeep and there is a minor issue. My 6.6 TM w/ a E47 pump is not staying all the way down and lifting my front end up like it had last year... this is the first issue I have had with it in the 2 years I have owned it..... any advice on what I need to do or what the issue could be?
    Thanks fellas

    You mean you lower it and it drifts back up? or when you plow it raises up?

    When I drop it down to the ground, it does not appear to be flat on the ground nor does it seem to scrape as well.... Could i have the chain a link too high in the bracket?

    Sounds like a couple links. There should be at least an inch of chrome piston showing when the blade is on the ground.

    sweet! It might be a good idea to have a little slack in the chain, this way the plow has room to drop and follow any contours. IDK tho, I dont have a chain on mine.
