    i have a 97 gmc half ton with a 6" rough country suspension and a 2 in body lift with 35's. I didnt want to put a plow on it but with he tight economy and finical issues i have to. i am putting a 7.5 myer on it and im wondering if any one had any suggestions on how i should drop the mount. or if i should fab the A frame for the plow instead of the mount, i was thinking that would be better. i will be running smaller tires not the 35s. also does anyone know what the proper height from the mount to the ground should be for a myer?? thanks

    The proper height is 10 or 11 inches I believe for the classic tubular system. You will have to fab the mount to drop down and give you the right height, so the a frame stays level.
