    Well im wanting to lift my truck allitle but wanted to get a idea of how it will sit with a plow and i dont want to do any modification to the mounting bracket. i was thinking of doing a leveling kit with 35's or bigger or a 4" lift, So if anyone is running a lifted dodge with a plow please post pics. And mine is a 2008 Ram 2500 too.

    i wish i woulda gotton a pic now..but i just did a plow on a '04 cummins 2500 with a leveling kit on stock wheels/tires and it was a PITA the mounts did not mount up right to get the correct height on the plow... made it a pain in the ass to get the plow hooked up/unhooked the owner knew this and still went ahead with it.

    so i'd be alittle cautious when going this route.

    Do you know if anyone makes a custom mount so if you lift your truck you can lower and higher the plow on the mount. I remember seeing a member on here with a plow that did that. I believe it was a black ram that did a 4" lift. I have a Western Steel Pro Plow 8 1/2' Brand new. Prob 2 weeks old.

    I've seen the older trucks that had the Fisher speedcast plows where the A frame had been modified like the one in the link, use to often see the 73-87 GM trucks with 4" lifts on them that also were plow trucks. I knew one guy that had his a frame modified and it held up as good as stock.

    Blizzards sit pretty low mount wise, cause I have a 2" Lift on my Dakota and its perfect, anything more and it would be an issue. For a Blizzard, even with the 2" Lift, the mount would actually scarpe steep driveways, so they do sit lower.

    FYI: When I got new tires for my 2500, I couldn't find anything bigger than stock (265/70) with an E load rating (using the stock 17s, anyway)...
    If you want to go with a lift and bigger tires, look into all your parts before purchasing. JMO...

    Here is mine, however the 35's come off in the winter and get replaced with 285's on stock rims. I run about an inch above what Boss recommends, but it still works well.

    yup you got it BADER. sometimes with trucks with 6inches or more of lift we are able to make a plate the can be bolted directly inbetween the push beam and the side plates. effectivly bolting the new plate to the inside of the side plates up top and bolting the push beam down where it needs to be. with holes all up and down the custom plate we are able to adjust the push beam to whatever tires or lift the truck ever has
