    I have a 98 k2500 lifted 6 inches with 35's and a 7.4L(454) that has been my plow truck for 5 years or so. I have a Western Unimount that has not been modified at all. I got the regular truckside that any other person with a stock truck would get and mounted it to mine with the mounting points as low as the manual said I could put them. I could do it this way because I have a straight blade and the A-frame doesn't have to be perfectly level. I don't burn through cutting edges any faster than the rest of the stock trucks I plow with so don't let anybody tell you that you will. No pics, but I hope this helps.

    Majority of those trucks are PS members. At a quick glance I saw mossman, got-h20, doakster, philbilly2, bowtie_guy, GMC HD, wolfmobile8, and a few others.

    I'll see if I have pictures of my truck anywhere that are worth posting.
    06 2500HD on a 4-6" Cognito set at 4" I run small tires in the winter and have a modified truck side mount. Handles my plows just as well if not better then when it was stock.

    Mark how has your truck frame handled the extra leverage applied to the frame with the plow mount being lower than that of a stock truck.
