    In the prcess of putting my 75 LDA Snowman Snowplow Pull Plow together, and I have a question. The attachment point for the arms on the plow itself and the LDA Lower Pivot Arm are adjustable. The documentation says they are adjustable to be compatable for different height vehicles, but does not say how you know it is correct. Should the arms be vertical when the plow is down or at an angle one way or the other? Right now they are at the highest setting and that puts the arms and plow at an angle. The bottom of is farther from the truck then the top.
    The plow is on a 2003 Ram 1500 4x4 17" Tires Stock if that matters.

    THANKS.
    P.S. It is 7am in Central Jersey and the snow is just starting.

    We had the same dilemma when we put our 70+ series Snowman plows on our Chevy's. Try moving it down at least one hole so the plow is sitting level, too much angle and you won't have the downpressure you need and the plow will trip. You may have to adjust it a few times, so don't tighten the bolts very tight until you get it where it needs to be. Trial and error is the best method, unfortunately.
