    Hi Folks,

    New guy 'Mike from NJ' here. I have a '95 Ford F150 I use to plow my farm and a few neighbors. Shortbed, Regular cab, set up with a standard Western 7.5' I bought new a couple years ago. It worked great until I had to muck things up by installing a 4" suspension lift & 33" tires in the F150. Overall this puts me about 6" higher than before. I have some adjustment in the plow frame but nowhere near enough to get the plow 'level' during plowing.

    Before I fabricate something to get the mount points lower, does anyone know if someone offers such a product or can share some advice (other than remove the lift kit) for me?

    MANY thanks in advance,

    Take off the suspension kit and add a body lift. I had a 2" body lift on our 94 F150 and it looked awesome! we ran 31x10.50x15 tires and everything worked just as it should with a plow.

    I'm not going back!

    Hey Brian,

    Thanks for the reply. Matter of fact i JUST took my 31x10.5s off in favor of the 4" Susp./33's...and I'm NOT going back :D. I'll try to get some pics this week...I'm REALLY happy. I'll probably just Fab. something to get me where I need to be. It'll need to be strong. Just hoping someone has experience with this.

    Thanks again,
